The importance of children’s nutritional status for subsequent human capital formation, the limited evidence of the effectiveness of social protection interventions on child nutrition, and the absence of knowledge on the intra-household impacts of cash and food transfers or how they are shaped by complementary programming motivate this paper.
In this paper, advocate for a systemic approach to water management for improved health and nutrition. Focus on rural and peri-urban areas of the developing world, where multipurpose water systems are particularly relevant.
The debate on climate finance in many climate-vulnerable developing countries tends to focus on finance provided by national governments and international donors. Yet the financial contribution of individual households in combatting the risks of climate change and extreme weather events is almost entirely ignored.
In this paper, assess the impacts of genetically modified eggplant, Bt brinjal, on economic and health outcomes in Bangladesh using a cluster randomized controlled design. Bt brinjal cultivation reduces the cost of pesticide use by 47 percent.
This publication explores the potential of the Meghna River as an alternative water source for Dhaka. It also describes the fragile state of the city’s current drinking water supply due to increasing demand and surface contamination.
The Bt brinjal impact evaluation is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the impact of uptake and adoption of the Bt brinjal technology among Bangladeshi farmers, mimicking as much as possible the real-world context of a roll-out.
This case study describes Bangladesh’s success story using the standardized approach used by the Universal Health Coverage Studies Series (UNICO Studies Series) to provide a balanced account of the key pillars that lay behind the success of pluralism in the health system of Bangladesh.
