This study narrates the struggle of KMBP through the lens of vertical integration - how campaigns target different levels of governance (village, municipality, national, etc.) to achieve meaningful change. Using vertical integration, the paper uses a new mapping tool to identify the wide variety of actions taken by KMBP and its partners, the level of governance they have targeted, and the level of intensity in which they were pursued. In addition to spotlighting the central role of peasant mobilisation in promoting redistributive policy implementation, this paper's broader takeaway emphasises the relevance of analysing accountability initiatives through mapping the varied repertoires of both pro- and anti-accountability forces.</p> <div class="field button"><a href="http://accountabilityresearch.org/web/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/WP2_Philippines_DEC17.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for the 42-page report in PDF format.</a></div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/ground.png" alt="" title="From the Ground Up: Multi-Level Accountability Politics in Land Reform in the Philippines" width="100" height="55" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> joyaceron </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://accountabilityresearch.org/publication/from-the-ground-up-multi-level-accountability-politics-in-land-reform-in-the-philippines" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">ARC website</a>, January 17 2018. <em>Image caption/credit:</em> A community meeting in Hacienda Matias, where farmers discussed their issues and concerns about the implementation of agrarian reform. © Katarungan/RIGHTS Network</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://comminit.com/global/content/ground-multi-level-accountability-politics-land-reform-philippines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://comminit.com/global/content/ground-multi-level-accountability-politics-land-reform-philippines#comments Philippines Strategic Thinking Advocacy Digital Civil Society Person-to-Person Print Radio Governance and Democracy NGOs Natural Resources Management Rights Democracy and Governance Global Natural Resource Management Wed, 17 Jan 2018 15:55:25 +0000 joyaceron 9513205 at http://comminit.com Occurrence of Home-Based Record Stock-Outs: A Quiet Problem for National Immunization Programmes Continues http://comminit.com/global/content/occurrence-home-based-record-stock-outs-quiet-problem-national-immunization-programmes-c <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-label">Author:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> David W.

The paper annotates 15 documents put forth by various organisations, providing a description of each resource based on text drawn from the documents itself. The resources include: human rights elements; principles and related recommended actions; comprehensive programming frameworks; how-to operational guidance; and tools that support rights-based FP programmes.</p> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-pdflink"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="http://evidenceproject.popcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Resource-Guide-of-RBA-to-FP-Dec_2017.pdf" target="_blank">Click here for the 31-page resource in PDF format.</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher"> <div class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/global/content/evidence-project">The Evidence Project</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Number of Pages:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>31</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-contact-user-ref"> <div class="field-label">Contacts (user reference):&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Karen Hardee </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-source-text"> <div class="field-label">Source:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://evidenceproject.popcouncil.org/resource/rights-based-family-planning-10-resources-to-guide-programming" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Evidence Project website</a>, January 12 2018. <em>Image credit:</em> Evidence Project</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://comminit.com/global/content/rights-based-family-planning-15-resources-guide-programming" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://comminit.com/global/content/rights-based-family-planning-15-resources-guide-programming#comments Global Materials Advocacy Bilaterals Person-to-Person SDG 3: Good Health Reproductive Health Rights USAID Global Health Fri, 12 Jan 2018 18:28:30 +0000 Karen Hardee 9513104 at http://comminit.com Communicating Risk in Public Health Emergencies http://comminit.com/global/content/communicating-risk-public-health-emergencies <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-publication-date"><legend>Publication Date</legend><div class="field field-type-date field-field-date-0"> <div class="field-label">Publication Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Tuesday, January 10, 2017</span> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://comminit.com/global/files/imagecache/thumbnail/risk3.png" alt="" title="Communicating Risk in Public Health Emergencies" width="100" height="62" class="imagecache imagecache-thumbnail imagecache-default imagecache-thumbnail_default"/> </div> </div> </div> <p>Created by the World Health Organization (WHO) Department of Infectious Hazard Management in collaboration with the WHO Department of Communications, the recommendations in this resource provide overarching, evidence-based guidance on how risk communication should be practised in an emergency.
