Do CCT programmes have a pro-poor spillover effect?

September 2009 — By Christian Lehmann

This one pager looks at the indirect impact of cash transfer programmes on the food consumption of households which have not received a transfer, but are within the same village as households which have. The paper looks at why this occurs, using evidence from Mexico to show that this phenomena in indeed pro-poor and thus has an even wider impact on poverty than was previously thought.
