Abstract (200 Character Limit) : 

The All Children Reading team, Global Reading Network and Global Book Alliance will be advocating heavily around the issue of book hunger this year, particularly reducing wastage and leakages as children, parents and teachers await their books at schools. On February 22, over 40 reading experts gathered at the REACH offices in person and virtually for an information-gathering meeting on the status of and challenges encountered in current USAID-funded "Track and Trace"(T&T) programming. Innovations to track and trace books are being piloted in several countries, many initiated by All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development's prize competition for Tracking and Tracing Books.
