Longitudinal study on Zambia's social cash transfer programme

A series of reports outlining the impact of the social cash transfer scheme in Zambia


These reports are part of a longitudinal randomized controlled trial that analyses the impact of Zambia’s Social Cash Transfer programme during the period 2011-2014. It presents the findings from a Multiple Categorical Grant programme follow-up survey at 24, 30, 36 months after a baseline was conducted. The evaluation found that cash transfers reduce the poverty gap among beneficiary households, help protect consumption during the lean season, enhance food security, and generate productive and economic impacts for families and communities.

All baseline and staggered reports are available to download in the right column.
