Conditional Cash Transfer and Reduction in Child Poverty: A Review of Evidence

This study entitled: Reducing Child Poverty with Cash Tranfers: A Sure Thing? is a comparative analysis about the impacts of Cash Transfer Initiatives (CCT) as tools to alleviate the impacts of poverty on children.

“Widespread poverty and vulnerability among children and their households in developing countries provide a strong motivation to find appropriate policy response.”

With a section of the study looking into the dynamics behind Conditional Cash Transfer programs in Latin-America and the Caribbean, the authors shed some lights on the effectiveness of such schemes, bearing in mind the extent of the correlation with children living in poor households, the terms and arrangements set to channel the right targeting strategies for those children, and mostly the conditionalities and entitlements that should sustain the effectiveness of such programs on poverty reduction.
