Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) is a DFID funded 9 year longitudinal research programme 2015-2023 focused on understanding what sorts of interventions at what junctures work to advance adolescent girls capabilities involving three broad research components. It will prepare evidence gap maps and synthesise reviews on best practice in tackling adolescent girls’ vulnerabilities (from child marriage to adolescent suicide to economic asset deficits). GAGE is a longitudinal mixed methods study of adolescent girls and their families which will trace changes over time into early adulthood. The study is being conducted in four countries (Bangladesh, Nepal, Ethiopia, Rwanda). A participatory research study in conflict-affected contexts in MENA (State of Palestine and Syrian refugee communities in Jordan and/or Lebanon) and West Africa (Northern Nigeria and possibly Burkina Faso or Niger) working with older adolescents as they transition out of empowerment programmes to better understand legacy effects is also being completed.
