The Transfer Project Workshop was held in Arusha (Tanzania) from 2-4 April 2019, bringing together over 130 participants, including researchers, policy-makers, academics and development partners, from 20 different countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Over three days, participants discussed the latest evidence and shared their experiences of social protection research generation and policy-making.
Now in its seventh iteration, the Transfer Project workshop has grown from 39 participants in 2010, to over 130 participants in 2019. It is increasingly seen as an important forum where governments exchange and learn about the use of evaluations and evidence produced by UNICEF Innocenti and partners in decision-making processes across the region.
The Transfer Project is a collaboration between UNICEF, FAO, UNC Chapel Hill, as well as national governments and local research partners. For over a decade, this multi-organisational research initiative has been producing evidence on the impacts of cash transfers in sub-Saharan Africa, going beyond measuring typical economic outcomes, to find out if and how cash impacts other aspects of people’s lives.
