    Abstract:

    There is renewed interest in irrigation to help build climate resilience in sub-Saharan on the part of governments and donors. However, many previous irrigation investments have significantly underperformed. In this brief we consider the factors that are associated with irrigation system performance for two different types of systems: surface water irrigation schemes with many irrigators and groundwater pumping systems adopted by individual farmers. Surface water schemes that take advanta…

  • Abstract:

    Human trafficking in Guatemala occurs in various forms and places, many of which are hidden or hard to discern. Labor trafficking is especially difficult to pinpoint given that the fraud, coercion or force involved may be hidden in plain sight. From fields full of laborers harvesting sugarcane to solitary domestic workers, there are few visible signs to differentiate an at-will worker from a victim of trafficking. And the problem is growing - estimates of labor trafficking globally have incre…

    Abstract:

    The effects of climate change will require Tajikistan to transition or diversify from hydroelectric power, which provides 95 percent of its energy, to other kinds of renewable energy. Although transition or diversification away from hydroelectric power is necessary, it will come at the expense of jobs and economic challenges in the region. To overcome these challenges, Tajikistan will need to implement a just transition mechanism to other forms of renewable energy. This policy brief provides …

    Abstract:

    Many water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions have traditionally implemented monitoring and evaluation plans that use a narrow set of WASH indicators that reflect a 20th-century prioritization of microbiological water quality as the most important proxy for WASH intervention success. Even when water is microbiologically safe, there are often substantial structural, behavioral, and institutional barriers to access. Measures of WASH intervention success should incorporate these impac…

    Abstract:

    In 2008, Oxfam staff envisioned a new approach to address the poverty wages and harsh conditions of farmworkers, one of the most mistreated workforces in the United States. Oxfam created a multi-stakeholder initiative, bringing together for the first time all the key players in the fresh produce supply chain: farmworkers, growers and retailers. All of these players had a history of conflict and antagonism with each other, but they had to find a way to identify their overlapping interests and…

    Abstract:

    In August 2021, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi declared his intention to raise the price of subsidized bread in Egypt and establish a new program to deliver school meals to children. As a result of his speech, a heated debate emerged regarding the importance of bread as an integral part of the country’s food subsidy program: How can food subsidy reform (ie, increasing the price of bread) solve the nutrition problems of children? How can the right to adequate food be respected within the r…

  • Abstract:

This priority has inclined the dominant approach taken to peace and …
