  • Title School-based interventions to reduce dating and sexual violence
  • Spanish PLS Los programas escolares para prevenir la violencia de pareja no modifican el comportamiento

La violencia sicológica, física y sexual en las relaciones de pareja tiene un impacto significativo en la salud mental y física de los jóvenes. La violencia de pareja puede tener consecuencias a largo plazo, como depresión, trastornos alimenticios y abuso de sustancias, además de afectar el rendimiento escolar.

  • PLS Title Farmer field schools improve agricultural practices, yields and incomes in small pilot programmes, but not in large-scale programmes
  • PLS Description The purpose of farmer field schools is to improve farmers’ skills to empower them to make better decisions. Different programmes have different objectives, but they often aim to reduce pesticides use, promote better farming practices and boost yields or income. Field schools use facilitators who employ participatory, experiential learning methods over an entire growing season. For example, farmer field schools use ‘practice plots’ where farmers can compare results from different farming methods. In contrast to traditional agricultural extension projects, which mainly teach simple practices such as applying fertilisers, farmer field schools often teach holistic techniques, such as integrated pest management. Farmer field schools have been widely used across Asia, Africa and Latin America, reaching an estimated 10–15 million farmers. This review examines the effectiveness of farmer field schools in changing farmer knowledge and practice, and improving yields, income, environmental impact and farmer empowerment.
  • Title Farmer field schools for improving farming practices and farmer outcomes in low- and middle-income countries
  • Spanish PLS Las escuelas de campo para agricultores mejoran las prácticas agrícolas, los rendimientos e ingresos en programas piloto pequeños, pero no en programas a gran escala
  • Spanish PLS Description El propósito de las escuelas de campo para agricultores es mejorar las habilidades de los mismos con el fin de empoderarlos para que tomen mejores decisiones. Cada programa tiene objetivos distintos, pero a menudo apuntan a reducir el uso de pesticidas, promover mejores prácticas agrícolas, y mejorar los rendimientos o los ingresos. Las escuelas de campo se valen de facilitadores que emplean métodos de aprendizaje participativos y experimentales durante toda una temporada de cultivo. Por ejemplo, las escuelas de campo para agricultores utilizan ‘parcelas de práctica’, donde estos pueden comparar los resultados que tienen distintos métodos agrícolas. A diferencia de los proyectos tradicionales de extensión agrícola, los cuales enseñan principalmente prácticas simples (tales como la aplicación de fertilizantes), las escuelas de campo para agricultores suelen enseñar técnicas holísticas, tales como el manejo integrado de plagas. Las escuelas de campo para agricultores han sido muy utilizadas en Asia, África y Latinoamérica, alcanzando a aproximadamente 10-15 millones de agricultores. Esta revisión examina la efectividad que tienen las escuelas de campo para agricultores en modificar sus conocimientos y prácticas, y en mejorar su empoderamiento, así como los rendimientos, los ingresos y el impacto ambiental.

  • PLS Title Technical and vocational education and training for young people has a small positive effect on employment outcomes.
  • PLS Description Many young people in developing countries work in low quality jobs that have low potential for career development or supporting economic growth. This is particularly problematic for developing countries given the continually significant labour productivity gap between developing and developed regions. With increasing emphasis on work and skills based solutions to economic completion and poverty there is a renewed focus on TVET. This review examines the effectiveness of these TVET interventions on employment and employability outcomes of young people in low- and middle-income countries, and which factors may moderate these effects.

  • Spanish PLS La capacitación técnica y profesional para jóvenes tiene un efecto positivo, aunque pequeño, en los resultados del empleo
  • Spanish PLS Description Muchos jóvenes de países en desarrollo tienen empleos de baja calidad que poseen un escaso potencial de desarrollo profesional o de contribuir al crecimiento económico. Esto resulta particularmente problemático para los países en desarrollo, dada la brecha de productividad laboral continua y significativa que existe entre las regiones en desarrollo y las desarrolladas. Con un énfasis creciente en soluciones basadas en el trabajo y habilidades para lograr avances económicos y superar la pobreza, se crea un enfoque renovado en la EFTP. Esta revisión examina la efectividad de estas intervenciones de EFTP sobre los resultados de empleo y empleabilidad de los jóvenes en países de ingresos medios y bajos, y cuáles son los factores que pueden influir en estos efectos.
