Wellbeing and Poverty Pathways has published its third briefing paper presenting key findings and policy recommendations from the data collected in field research undertaken in the state of Chhattisgarh, India between 2011 and 2013.

Under the title 'Social Protection and Wellbeing: Food Security in Adivasi communities, Chhattisgarh, India', this paper presents qualitative and quantitative evidence that reinforce the importance of food security and social protection, showing that more secure livelihoods have a broader impact on people’s confidence and experience of quality in life.

This is the third briefing paper in a series that outlines the wellbeing assessment model, its implementation and results from our research. Briefing Number One sets out how the wellbeing assessment model provides a common framework of personal wellbeing that can accommodate local understandings and priorities, and Briefing Number Two presents key findings and policy recommendations from the data collected in the Wellbeing & Poverty Pathways field research undertaken in Chiawa, Zambia between 2010 and 2012.
