About the Transfer Project

The Transfer Project is a multi-country cash transfer research initiative. Established in 2008, the project is a collaborative network between UNICEF Innocenti, FAO, University of North Carolina, UNICEF Regional and Country Offices, national governments, and local research partners. The Transfer Project is a thought leader on cash transfers in Africa. We go beyond measuring typical economic outcomes to find out if and how cash transfers impact other aspects of people’s lives.

We record as many seminars as possible. You can see previous events here.
