Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI) Analysis: Rapid review to inform cash programming in Solomon Islands and Vanuatu

20 November 2023 — By Save the Children Australia

There is compelling global evidence that, on average, cash transfers reduce monetary poverty, raise school attendance and use of health services, reduce child labour and increase women’s decision-making power and choices. Cash programming though, is relatively new in Pacific Island Countries (PICs) and it is important that cash transfers are designed and delivered appropriately for the context. This brief draws on a Gender and Power Analysis and presents findings of a rapid literature review to outline considerations and risks when designing cash programming in PICs, and specifically in Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
