Today, virtually every country in sub-Saharan Africa has some kind of cash transfer programme. These programmes are increasingly recognized as key to fighting poverty and hunger. Designed to reflect regional characteristics, they emphasize strong community participation and focus on economically and socially marginalized populations – including children, the elderly, families without earning power and people living with disabilities. The book enhances understanding of social protection policies in Africa and how they lead to a broad range of social and productive impacts, as well as the role Transfer Project research has played in influencing policy and programme design.
