    DevTalks: Towards a gender-responsive approach to food and nutrition security in West Africa

    The discussion focused on the importance of gender-responsive approaches to food and nutrition insecurity. It highlighted that many responses still tend to operate in silos, narrowly focusing on improving women’s agency or access to information, instead of applying a truly intersectional approach that addresses the structural barriers that hamper their food and nutrition security.

    Using Google data to understand governments’ approval in Latin America

    This paper studies the potential drivers of governments’ approval rates in 18 Latin American countries using Internet search query data from Google Trends and traditional data sources. It employs monthly panel data between January 2006 and December 2015. The analysis tests several specifications including traditional explanatory variables of governments’ approval rates – i.e. inflation, unemployment rate, GDP growth, output gap – and subjective explanatory variables – e.g. perception of corruption and insecurity. For the latter, it uses Internet search query data to proxy citizens’ main social concerns, which are expected to drive governments’ approval rates. The results show that the perception of corruption and insecurity, and complaints about public services have a statistically significant association with governments’ approval rates. This paper also discusses the potential of Internet search query data as a tool for policy makers to understand better citizens’ perceptions, since it provides highly anonymous and high-frequency series in real-time.
