While cash transfers alone have contributed to numerous positive impacts in reducing poverty and promoting well-being, the provision of cash alone may fall short in achieving long-term positive impacts on nutrition, learning, and morbidity. ‘Cash plus’ programmes aim to rectify this impact gap by complementing cash transfers with additional inputs, services, and linkages to other services in order to more effectively achieve successful outcomes and ensure long-term sustainability.
