Blockages to preventing malnutrition in Kambia, Sierra Leone: a semi-quantitative causal analysis
Paul Binns, Ernest Guevarra, Mohamed Jalloh and Melrose Tucker
Drawing on a semi-quantitative evaluation of access and coverage (SQUEAC) approach, this report examines the blockages to preventing malnutrition in Kambia district, Sierra Leone. It finds that the issues causing malnutrition are both multifactorial and complex, suggesting a range of initiatives are needed in order to prevent it. Many of these initiatives already exist at community level, but they require strengthening and expansion. Our evidence also suggests that, in order to achieve sustained behaviour change at the local level, there is a need to target key decision-makers within the household, such as fathers and elders, and to engage seriously with traditional practices. 18/07/2014

This study looks at young women’s and men’s experiences in Kabul’s tailoring labour market, with a particular focus on: 1) how young women and men acquire skills and enter the urban labour market in the first place, particularly in light of the highly gendered nature of boundaries between public and private space; 2) what the nature, terms and limits of their labour market participation look like; and 3) whether participation in that urban labour market is working for or against them. 03/07/2014
