The lives they lead: exploring the capabilities of Bangladeshi and Rohingya adolescents in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh

In Cox’s Bazar, GAGE implemented the Cox’s Bazar Panel Survey to provide accurate data to humanitarian and government stakeholders involved in the response to the influx of refugees.

How GAGE works

By combining quantitative and qualitative research exploring adolescents’ gendered experiences with longitudinal impact evaluations testing programme effectiveness, GAGE aims to explore what strategies are most effective in transforming adolescent girls’ and boys’ lives at specific junctures during the second decade of life.
