          <div><span style="font-style: italic;">Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence</span> (GAGE) is a ten-year (2015-2025) research programme, funded by UK Aid from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), that seeks to combine longitudinal data collection and a mixed-methods approach to understand the lives of adolescents in particularly marginalized regions of the Global South, and to uncover 'what works' to support the development of their capabilities over the course of the second decade of life, when many of these individuals will go through key transitions such as finishing their education, starting to work, getting married and starting to have children.</div><div><br></div><div>GAGE undertakes longitudinal research in seven countries in Africa (Ethiopia, Rwanda), Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal) and the Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine). Sampling adolescent girls and boys aged between 10‐19‐year olds, the quantitative survey follows a global total of 18,000 adolescent girls and boys, and their caregivers and explores the effects that programme have on their lives. This is substantiated by in‐depth qualitative and participatory research with adolescents and their peers. Its policy and legal analysis work stream studies the processes of policy change that influence the investment in and effectiveness of adolescent programming.</div><br>Further information, including publications, can be found on the&nbsp;Overseas Development Institute <a href="https://www.gage.odi.org/" target="_blank">GAGE</a> website.&nbsp;<br><br> <p>The <span style="font-style: italic;">Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence: Covid-19 Phone Survey, 2020-2021</span> was designed to follow up with cohorts of adolescents in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Jordan to learn about household and adolescent experiences of the pandemic. The survey also includes a cross-sectional sample of adolescents in the State of Palestine. The survey was conducted over two rounds, in mid-2020 (Covid-R1) and late-2020 through early 2021 (Covid-R2). The survey aims to understand the knowledge, attitudes, and behavioural changes related to the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as effects of the pandemic on adolescents participating in the GAGE survey and their primary female caregivers.<br></p>
