World Bank, Experts Discuss Findings, Approaches And Policy Implications Of Conditional Cash Transfer Program Evaluations

A Center For Global Development “Global Health Policy” blog post reports that the World Bank this week “brought a distinguished group together to discuss new findings, evaluation approaches and policy implications” of conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs, writing, “Although 75 percent of published evaluations on [CCT programs] are sourced from Latin America, newer CCT programs in Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malawi, Pakistan, Tanzania and Nigeria are beginning to document, analyze and report results.” The blog highlights a number of findings and concludes that “questions [about the programs have] yet to be answered through rigorous impact evaluations” (10/27).
