We're breaking ground on our DFID funded research network for #gender-responsive and age-sensitive #SocialProtection. Watch the highlights from our #GRASSP workshop held in May 2019 to see what our experts have to say about this important research for children.
Social protection can not only enhance adolescent girls’ and boys’ capabilities now - and strengthen opportunities for empowerment as they transition into early adulthood - but it can also tackle lifecourse and inter-generational cycles of poverty and gender inequalities.
On the occasion of the 63rd Commission on the Status of Women, the United Kingdom, UNICEF and the GAGE consortium, coordinated by ODI, held the side event: Gender- and Adolescent-Responsive Social Protection: Unleashing the Potential of Social Protection for Adolescent Girls and Women.
This event discussed how social protection can better address life course vulnerabilities and break inter-generational cycles of poverty. It highlighted the need for adolescent- and gender-responsive policy, programmes, and research to build effective social protection systems.
