Urgent investment is needed in order to reduce violence against children in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

That's according to Marta Santos Pais, the UN Special Representative on Violence against Children.

She says that although some progress has been made, the "clock is ticking" and if more action is not taken "we won't get there."

Last week she launched at UN Headquarters in New York the book "Celebrating Childhood: a journey to end violence against children", published by her office.

Ms Santos Pais spoke to Agnese Pastorino.
