L’essai contrôlé randomisé (ECR) est une méthode suivie dans le cadre de l’évaluation d’impact. À partir d’une population admissible, cette méthode permet de sélectionner de façon aléatoire le groupe expérimental qui bénéficiera d’une intervention programmatique ou politique et le groupe contrôle qui servira de point de comparaison. L’ECR permet d’évaluer dans quelle mesure les impacts escomptés sont obtenus.

Par définition, l’évaluation répond à des questions évaluatives, c’est-à-dire des questions portant sur la qualité et l’intérêt. C’est ce qui justifie l’utilité et la pertinence des évaluations par rapport à une simple mesure d’indicateurs ou de simples résumés, observations et histoires.

LANGUAGES:

Una evaluación responde, por definición, a una serie de preguntas evaluativas, es decir, preguntas sobre la calidad y el valor. Por ese motivo, las evaluaciones son mucho más útiles y pertinentes que la mera medición de indicadores o los resúmenes de observaciones y narraciones. Los responsables de las decisiones recurren con frecuencia a ellas cuando tratan de dilucidar cómo pueden aprovechar los puntos fuertes y hacer frente a los puntos débiles.

This Brief summarizes findings from the impact evaluation of the Ghana Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme on schooling outcomes overall and for various subgroups: by sex, age group and cognitive ability.The findings underscore the importance of going beyond average treatment effects to analyse impacts by subgroup in order to unpack the programme effect

The paper uses data from a quasi-experimental evaluation to estimate the impact of the Ghanaian Government’s unconditional cash transfer programme on schooling outcomes. It analyses the impacts for children by various subgroups – age, gender, cognitive ability – and finds consistent impacts. There are differences across gender, especially on secondary schooling, with enrolment significantly higher for boys 13 years or older. For girls, the effect of the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme is to improve current attendance among those who are already enrolled in school (across all age groups). The authors found a significant effect on the expenditure on schooling items such as uniforms and stationary for these groups, which helps to explain the pathway of impact because these out-of-pocket costs are typically important barriers to schooling in rural Ghana and most of Africa.

Longitudinal research can help countries meet the challenges of sustainable development. The examples presented in this Brief serve to demonstrate the unique advantages of having access to longitudinal studies to complement cross-sectional surveys and administrative series.The Brief reviews data from the Young Lives cohorts, reflecting on evidence from the 2000-2015 Millennium Development period.

Over the past decade, more than a dozen government-run cash transfer programmes have been launched in sub-Saharan Africa, and there is growing evidence of their ability to improve a range of development outcomes. However, setting the size of such transfers is possibly the most important programming decision to be made. This Brief highlights some of the issues to consider.

This paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the impacts of cash transfer programmes on the immediate and underlying determinants of child nutrition, including the most recent evidence from impact evaluations across sub-Saharan Africa. The paper finds that the evidence to date on the immediate determinants of child nutrition is mixed with respect to whether cash transfers can positively impact growth-related outcomes among children, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.

LANGUAGES:

Inconsistent and unpredictable flow of cash transfers can impact the results of the LEAP programme and its evaluation. The programme did not lead to an increase in consumption, but household debt was reduced and loans repayment improved. Informal social networks gained in strength and reinforced social cohesion and protection helping to reduce risks at the local level.
