Behavior Integration is the Manoff Group’s signature approach to designing, implementing, evaluating, and improving development programming. Behavior Integration defines outcomes as specific behaviors required to achieve the development goal. It ensures that behavior is considered along with technical and operational issues in every program element and phase. The result is programs that maximize resources and accelerate impact, achieving lasting results.
The Child Length Mat addresses the need for an inexpensive, intuitive tool that helps families and communities identify stunting. It employs easy-to-use visual cues to assess if a child is within a normal height-for-age measurement, enabling community workers and families to identify and address potential problems before the impact of inadequate nutrition becomes permanent. The mat, originally developed for use in Bolivia, has been adapted and employed in Cambodia, Guatemala and Indonesia.
