Findings show that the CGP enabled poor women to save more cash and that the impact is larger for women who had lower decision-making power at baseline. The results support the proposition that cash transfers have the potential for long-term sustainable improvements in women’s financial position and household well-being by promoting savings and facilitating productive investments among low-income rural households.

Les méthodes quasi expérimentales identifient un groupe témoin qui doit être aussi proche que possible du groupe expérimental au niveau des caractéristiques initiales (préalables à l’intervention). Le groupe témoin permet d’identifier les résultats qui seraient survenus si le programme/la politique n’avait pas été mis(e) en œuvre (c.-à-d., la situation contrefactuelle). Cette méthode permet de prouver que le programme (ou la politique) est bien à l’origine des différences de résultat entre le groupe expérimental et le groupe témoin.

Un modèle est une représentation verbale, graphique ou mathématique de relations sociales ou économiques. Les modèles fournissent un cadre simplifié en privilégiant les liens essentiels et en ignorant certains facteurs considérés comme moins importants. Les modèles mathématiques décrivent les relations sociales et économiques sous forme de notation algébrique. Les plus simples sont les modèles à équation unique.

Over the past decade, more than a dozen government-run cash transfer programmes have been launched in sub-Saharan Africa as part of national social protection strategies. Recently there has been increased interest in examining whether such programmes reduce interpersonal violence, including between partners and against children. In this Research Brief we discuss different approaches that have been implemented in evaluations supported by the Transfer Project.

During the past decade, over 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. Comparing longitudinal data in four focus countries, this paper looks at a variety of emotional and physical aspects of young people’s development during their transition to adulthood.

An effective global monitoring system for child food insecurity is needed to increase awareness about the nature, extent, and distribution of child food insecurity, both within and across countries and regions, and over time. The effectiveness of a global monitoring system rests on two components: measurement of child food insecurity that reliably and accurately captures the phenomenon, and a vehicle for delivering that measurement to samples that support reliable and accurate inference to the populations of interest.

The focus in this paper is on non-contributory social transfers which are considered to be the main social protection instruments targeted specifically at poor and vulnerable households, and which are financed from general government revenues.

Consumption expenditure is probably the most common and preferred welfare indicator; however, its measurement is a challenging and time-consuming task. Although short consumption modules have potentially enormous advantage in terms of time and money savings, a recent and comprehensive literature on available experiments comparing short versus long modules is still lacking.
