The Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium (SLRC) is a global research programme exploring basic services, and social protection in fragile and conflict-affected situations. Funded by UK Aid from the UK government (DFID), with complementary funding from Irish Aid and EC, SLRC was established in 2011 with the aim of strengthening the evidence base and informing policy and practice around livelihoods and services in conflict.
Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) is a 9-years research program that explores the role of social norms around adolescents’ well being with a focus on adolescent girls. Adolescence is critical to development, but young people must be supported and empowered to reach their full potential. This research aims to identify what interventions, at which phase of life and sequence work best to maximize their capabilities and shape their own futures.
