The Transfer Project and the FAO Protection to Production Project will jointly host a workshop to develop an edited book on the impacts of cash transfer programs in sub-Saharan Africa.

Collaborators from eight countries (Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Ethiopia, Zambia, Malawi, South Africa, Zimbabwe) will convene in Pratolino, Italy to discuss their country case studies and write preliminary drafts of their chapters.

The edited book will contain a chapter on each country describing the cash transfer program and its political evolution, the methodology of the evaluation, and the main results.

Two summary chapters, one on impacts and the other on political economy, will tie together the country level analysis and highlight the important contributions to global knowledge, as well as the policy and programming implications.

The Transfer Project is a multi-country learning initiative on the impacts of cash transfer programs in sub-Saharan Africa. .
