Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence Programme (GAGE)


The Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) programme is a nine-year (2015-2024) mixed-methods longitudinal research programme exploring the gendered experiences of young people aged 10-19 years. We are following the lives of 18,000 adolescents in six focal countries: in Africa (Ethiopia, Rwanda), Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal) and the Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon).

GAGE aims to produce evidence of the most effective programs and interventions to radically change the lives of adolescents to dvance their wellbeing and better identify what is needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, including the commitment to Leave No One Behind.

In partnership with UNICEF Jordan, the program seeks to assess the impact of UNICEF's integrated programs targeting the well-being and empowerment of adolescents from the most marginalized groups. In Jordan, the program completed its first year of research, which included a sample of 3,500 adolescents / refugees and Jordanian communities in five governorates: Amman, Irbid, Mafraq, Jerash and Zarqa, focusing on six key areas: education and learing, physical health and nutrition, bodily integrity, psychosocial wellbeing, voice and agency and economic empowerment and social protection. The program is implemented in partnership with MINDSET and the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF).
