Case study
This case study examines how JICA and the Royal Thai Government collaborated on a project to strengthen the Multi-Disciplinary Teams approach to protect victims of human trafficking. Human trafficking is a serious human rights violation that can destroy lives, undermining families and communities while weakening the rule of law and strengthening transnational organized crime networks. Thailand is a source, destination, and transit country for men, women, and child victims of forced labor and sex trafficking. In recognition of the seriousness of the problem and the scope for increasing vulnerability in the context of both global and ASEAN community economic integration, the Royal Thai Government, local and international NGOs, and international organizations have made efforts to address...
Case study
The soaring prevalence of obesity, and the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) associated with it, is increasingly becoming one of the main public health threats in the world. Once considered an ailment of the rich, overweight and obesity are no longer a health concern only in wealthy countries.  Their prevalence continues to grow in low- and lower-middle-income countries (LMICs), and is pervasive even in countries where undernutrition persists.  To face this challenge, many countries have designed and implemented comprehensive strategies and standalone policies to curb the epidemic. However, most documentation around the process to design and implement these policies come from high-income countries, and only recently have there been some efforts aimed at understanding the process and...
Case study
Controlling crime, violence and insecurity is a great challenge in many parts of the developing world. By 2008, Ecuador had seen a worrisome increase in its rate of violent crimes, most emblematically the homicide rate that reached 18.9 per 100,000 inhabitants. The government demonstrated a weak capacity to prevent and react to crimes and other risks, as well as a little capacity for joint work among institutions to cope with the worsening crime rate. Many countries in Latin America and the Caribbean – the most violent region in the world – have experienced high rates of insecurity due to violent crime. However, Ecuador dramatically reduced this level of violence. By 2016, homicides had fallen to 5 per 100,000 inhabitants, and seven of the crimes that most affect citizen security had...

Case study
This case study examines the Republic of Korea’s reforestation policy between 1973 and 1987, with a focus on the introduction of the tree monitoring system. The tree monitoring system is one of a number of policies that contributed to successful forest reclamation projects, and has been evaluated as improving the survival rate of seedlings in plantations and increasing the responsibility and morale of forestry officers.
