Promoting positive parenting practices in Niger through a cash transfer programme

2017 — By Oumar Barry, Ali Mory Maïdoka, Patrick Premand

In 2011, the Government of Niger set up a national social safety net
programme – the ‘Projet Filets Sociaux’. It includes unconditional cash transfers as well as behavioural change measures to promote investments in children. Lessons from programme implementation and evaluations so far highlight the opportunities for this model to reach a large number of poor families and induce changes in parenting practices. Challenges to achieve impacts on child development and ensure quality during scale-up are also underlined.
