In partnership with national governments, research partners and civil society, UNICEF, Save the Children UK and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have launched The Transfer Project: Learning How Social Transfers Work in Africa. The Transfer Project is an innovative research and learning initiative which supports improved knowledge and practice on social transfers in Africa in several key areas:
- Support to national longitudinal quantitative and qualitative impact evaluation in the region – to help us understand not only what impacts cash transfers are achieving, but also how and why.
- Cross-regional analysis to draw thematic and operational lessons based on the diversity of social transfer programmes in the region.
- Creating mechanisms for regional learning & exchange among regional policy makers, implementers, researchers and civil society – through workshops, web resources, public data availability, and publications.
