Helpdesk Research Report: Financing and Cost-effectiveness of Cash Transfer Schemes

2011 — By GSDRC

Query: What does the evidence base on the costing, financing and cost effectiveness of cash transfer schemes tell us?

Cash transfers are a form of social assistance in which money or cash-like instruments (e.g. vouchers) are distributed to vulnerable individuals or households. They can vary in targeting (eligibility requirements, such as age, poverty, and disability) or conditionality (specific actions required to receive payment, such as requiring children to attend school or a health clinic).
