Child poverty in Scotland : taking the next steps /

by Sinclair, Stephen | McKendrick, John.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This study discusses progress made in Scotland to end child poverty, and suggests what the Scottish Government needs to do to reach the 2020 target. ; Child poverty has fallen in Scotland, but evidence from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation suggests that the current rate of progress will not achieve the 2020 target to eradicate child poverty. Some policy measures required to reduce child poverty (such as benefit increases) are not devolved powers, but the Scottish Government could do more to remove barriers to employment, sustain people in work and tackle low pay. ; The Scottish Government should consider: ; Encouraging employers to create more flexible jobs which allow parents to combine work and care responsibilities. ; Increasing access to affordable, flexible childcare. ; Providing in-work support and advice to help parents remain in employment. ; Defining a Scottish living wage, and commit to paying this to public sector employees.Availability: (1)

Climate change, justice and vulnerability /

by Lindley, Sarah | Joseph Rowntree Foundation | O'Neill, John | Kandeh, Joseph.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rowntree Foundation 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Bibliography pp. 113-119 Appendices pp. 120-176Summary: Climate change will increase the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events such as floods and heatwaves in the UK. This project is concerned with justice in the distribution of the effects of these events on well-being. The effects of extreme weather events will not be distributed evenly. How badly a person or group will be affected will depend not just on their exposure to the event, but on their vulnerability - that is, how well they are able to cope with and respond to floods and heatwaves. Vulnerability is a matter of how events convert into losses in well-being.Availability: (1)
