The 2016 UNICEF Innocenti Results Report presents the activities and key results of the Office of Research achieved in 2016.

The economic status of households can and does affect the health and well-being of adolescents. To address the intersection between economic deprivations and broader development goals, including health and well-being, governments, aid agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have begun to include economic strengthening interventions as part of their core programming. This brief presents strategies for examining the multidimensional effects of economic strengthening interventions with a specific focus on the health and well-being of adolescent beneficiaries, highlighting research gaps and opportunities.

UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti has worked on research related to support for families and parents since 2013. In particular, Innocenti supported research on the Sinovuyo Caring Families Programme for Parents and Teens, by partnering with Oxford University in doing qualitative research that examined service delivery mechanisms and implications for taking it to scale.

The paper discusses how living in poverty affects relationships between parents and children. Meeting the basic economic needs of a family is the priority for parents, who then have limited time, energy and resources to devote to their children. We also found that children exposed to violence in the home are also frequently exposed to corporal punishment at school.

Adolescence is a time of transitions when experimentation, risk taking and active peer interactions can be viewed as a part of the development process. Yet, for some groups of young people with reported poor psychosomatic health, low life satisfaction or unhealthy eating habits these experiences may be different.

This study analyses variation in the extent of inequality in the lower half of the distribution in five indicators of adolescent health and well-being – health symptoms, physical activity, healthy eating, unhealthy eating, and life satisfaction – across EU and/or OECD countries that took part in the latest cycle of the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children study.

Los estudios de caso comparativos se efectúan a lo largo del tiempo y hacen hincapié en la comparación en un contexto y entre ellos. Resultan convenientes cuando no es posible llevar a cabo un diseño experimental, o cuando hay una necesidad de comprender y explicar la influencia de las características del contexto en el éxito de las iniciativas del programa o política. Esta información es valiosa ya que permite adaptar las intervenciones con miras a obtener los resultados deseados.

LANGUAGES:
Les études de cas comparatives sont menées au fil du temps et comparent différentes situations dans un contexte donné et entre différents contextes. Elles peuvent être sélectionnées lorsqu’il n’est pas possible de mettre en place un modèle expérimental et/ou pour comprendre et expliquer la façon dont les caractéristiques d’un contexte influent sur la réussite d’un programme ou d’une politique.

LANGUAGES:
L’utilisation d’approches participatives dans le cadre de l’évaluation d’impact consiste à impliquer les parties prenantes, particulièrement les participants d’un programme ou les individus concernés par une politique, dans certains aspects du processus d’évaluation. Le terme « approches participatives » recouvre plusieurs types de participation qui diffèrent de par leur nature, leur objet, leur méthode et l’identité des individus dont la participation est souhaitée.

LANGUAGES:
Al aplicar enfoques participativos en la evaluación de impacto, se involucra a los interesados —en especial a los participantes en un programa o a los afectados por una política determinada— en aspectos concretos del proceso de evaluación. El término comprende un conjunto amplio de tipos de participación, que divergen en el significado de «participación», los sujetos que intervienen y los aspectos en que toman parte y cómo lo hacen.
