ICAI examined how well the Department for International Development (DFID) used cash transfer programmes to reduce poverty and vulnerability. The review found that the transfers – which include any regular payments made to individuals or households – had consistently increased incomes and consumption levels among some of the world’s poorest people, and presented a strong value for money case. The review gave DFID a ‘green-amber’ score, concluding DFID’s cash transfer programmes – which amount to average spending of £201 million a year – were making a good impact, but could achieve even more.
