Cash transfers are predictable payments made directly to poor people. There is growing evidence that cash transfers have a range of positive effects, however the evidence varies – it is strong, for example, on reducing poverty and hunger, and helping people to access health and education services. But it is weaker on more transformational effects; there is strong logic but little evidence of the effects of cash transfers on citizen’s voice, empowerment, gender equality, social cohesion and state-building.

The following six country reports are the first of several sets of outputs from the research project:

  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the Senior Citizen Grant (SCG) in Uganda
  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the Palestinian national cash transfer programme – Part 1: the case of the Gaza Strip
  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the Palestinian national cash transfer programme – Part 2: the case of the West Bank
  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the basic social subsidy programme in Mozambique
  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the cash transfer for orphans and vulnerable children programme in Kenya
  • Transforming cash transfers: beneficiary and community perspectives on the social welfare fund in Yemen
