EFA global monitoring report

An example of early-stage interventions comes from Bangladesh, where the importance of targeting children in remote and rural areas in a proactive manner has been understood. A situational analysis identified ten different categories of exclusion-prone children. Based on these findings, the country developed an Action Plan that runs in addition to the traditional educational programs but seeks to enhance the inclusion of such vulnerable populations.

Big data for development: a primer

In one of its proof-of-concept projects, Global Pulse attempted to find out whether social media can add depth to unemployment statistics.

An exploratory look at public sector innovation in GCC countries

Research into individual innovation cases allows for comparisons and generalisations to be made. In 2011, NESTA in the United Kingdom piloted a survey attempting to identify the most important sources of innovation in the national public sector, targeting members of the National Health Service (NHS) and local government organisations. A similar approach was taken by the EU Innobarometer in 2010 and when the two surveys are compared, a broadly similar distribution of innovation sources was revealed. Through the analysis of individual innovation cases, patterns were identified.

A policy guide for implementing essential interventions for reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH)

Put in place in various jurisdictions around the world, the Multidimensional Continuum of Care for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (RMNCH) is another example in this regard.

The Multidimensional Continuum for the Homeless in the US is a complex continuum put in place to assist people living in shelters transfer into transitional houses, get ready for jobs, undergo drug and alcohol treatment, (re)establish contacts with families, and finally find a permanent home alongside long-term support services to help ensure they remain housed. Cutting across sectors, time and levels, this continuum is argued to be as multidimensional and transversal as the exclusion it strives to combat.

The Recommendation promotes a comprehensive strategy based on the integration of three policy pillars – adequate income support, inclusive labour markets, and access to quality services – taking due account of their joint impact on the social and economic inclusion of disadvantaged people and their possible interrelationships.
