Understanding the impact of cash transfers: the evidence

July 2016 — By Jessica Hagen-Zanker, Francesca Bastagli, Luke Harman, Valentina Barca, Georgina Sturge and Tanja Schmidt

This policy brief summarises the findings of a rigorous review of the evidence on the impacts of cash transfers on individuals and households, covering literature spanning 15 years (2000–2015) (Bastagli et al., 2016). This review is distinct from other cash transfer reviews in terms of the methods used, the breadth of the evidence synthesised, and a focus on programme design and implementation features.
