ABSTRACT

The increased efforts by donors such as DFID to promote social transfers and social protection in low and middle-income countries over the past five years have yet to achieve significant outcomes in terms of actually reducing vulnerability and poverty. However, a number of more intermediate outputs and outcomes have been achieved, including the development of national strategies and policies on social protection, some budgetary committments, a growing awareness amongst key policy actors of the potential of social transfers and social protection to recude vulnerability and poverty, the piloting of social transfer schemes that could potentially be scaled-up to national level and growing levels of donor harmonisation in this area.
