Slide 1 Setting the scene Benjamin Davis Gaspar Fajth Workshop on the Protection to Production project September 20, 2012 Rome Rapid expansion of government-run cash transfers in Sub Saharan Africa • Approximately half of the countries of SSA have some kind of government-run CT program – And others have multilateral/NGO-run CT programs • Some programs are national – Others scaling up – Some recent pilots Cash transfers national scale up (as of end 2010) % of population covered by cash transfer program 0 5 10 15 20 25 Presenter Presentation Notes Only included major cash transfer programs, paid directly to beneficiaries Numbers certainly higher now While cash transfers not new to the region, new push over last 5-10 years Three groups of experiences National or near national programs Southern African countries plus Ethiopia Consolidated and expanding programs Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, Ghana Pilots or near pilots Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe (Senegal, Liberia, ……) Wide range of designs • Universal programs – Old age pensions, child grants • Targeted programs – Focus on ultra poor, labor constrained; OVC and other specific vulnerabilities • Unconditional (for the most part) – “Soft” conditions and strong messages • Cash for work for able bodied – Often explicitly linked to productive activities (PSNP, VUP, Somalia) • Prominent role of community in targeting What’s particular about the context of cash transfers in Sub Saharan Africa • HIV/AIDS – Economic and social vulnerability • Widespread poverty • Continued reliance on subsistence agriculture and informal economy – Exit path from poverty is not necessarily through the labor market – Poorly developed markets and risk, risk, risk H ig he r r is k an d vu ln er ab ilit y W ea ke r i ns tit ut io ns • Less fiscal space---donors play a stronger role – Dependent on bilateral, multilateral support • Still missing consensus among national policy makers • Weaker institutional capacity to implement programs • Weaker supply of services (health and education) Impact evaluation plays a central role in improving program design and implementation • Conditional cash transfer revolution in Latin America and the Caribbean heralded new prominence and acceptance of applying rigorous impact evaluations to social programs • Radically advanced state of knowledge on CCTs, improving program implementation and methodology, technique, design, sampling and analysis of impact evaluation data • Rigorous impact evaluation has become defining characteristic of cash transfer programs in Sub Saharan Africa—rivaling the experience of Latin America 1st and 2nd generation cash transfer program impact evaluations in Sub Saharan Africa (20 in 14) • Malawi SCT – Mchinji pilot, 2008-2009 – Expansion, 2013-2014 • Kenya – CT OVC, Pilot 2007-2011 – CT OVC, Expansion, 2012-2014 – HSNP, Pilot 2010-2012 • Mozambique PSA – Expansion, 2008-2009 • Zambia – Monze pilot, 2007-2010 – Child Grant, 2010-2013 • South Africa CSG – Retrospective, 2010 • Burkina Faso – Experiment, 2008-2010 • Sierra Leone – Pilot, 2011-2012 • Ethiopia – PNSP, 2006-2010 – Tigray SPP, 2012-2014 • Ghana LEAP – Pilot, 2010-2012 • Lesotho, CSP – Pilot, 2011-2013 • Uganda, SAGE – Pilot, 2012-2014 • Zimbabwe, SCT – Pilot, 2013-2015 • Tanzania, TASAF – Pilot, 2009-2012 – Expansion, 2012-2014 • Niger – Begins in 2012 Presenter Presentation Notes A defining characteristic of the expansion of cash transfer programs in Sub Saharan Africa is that many, if not most, are accompanied by rigorous impact evaluation Main evaluation topics in the 1st generation 1. (...) Lesotho, Zimbabwe What is exciting about these impact evaluations • Impact evaluations of government-run programs—not experiments – National ownership and direct link to policy and program design – Experiments such as recent Zomba provide important insights into program design, but what is external validity? – Randomized control trial as ideal, but as rigorous as feasibly possible given logistical, policy and political constraints • Large role of community in targeting poses particular challenge to randomization As a result, continuum of designs • Randomized control trials combined with perfect mimicking in targeting (Lesotho, Zambia) • Less robust experimental designs, with fewer units of randomisation and/or approximate mimicking in targeting (Malawi, Kenya) • Variety of non experimental designs – Longitudinal designs with matched controls (Mozambique, Zimbabwe) – Controls from national datasets (Ghana) – Retrospective impact evaluations of existing programs, with matched controls (Ethiopia, South Africa) • Most use mixed methods, integrating econometric and qualitative approaches, and more recently, model simulation approaches The Transfer Project • Emerges in context of expansion of impact evaluation of cash transfer programs • Begun by UNICEF and Save the Children UK, later joined by University of North Carolina and FAO, in coordination with national governments and research partners – Currently “self” funded • From Protection to Production project falls under Transfer Project umbrella Transfer Project: Objectives • Provide evidence on the effectiveness of cash transfer programs in achieving impacts for children • Inform the development and design of cash transfer policy and programs • Promote learning across the continent on the design and implementation of cash transfer evaluations and research Transfer Project: The 3 Pillars 1.

No other program can guarantee access to jobs at decent wages. (...) Programs can limit time spent in the program, or hours worked monthly. (...) Limiting the scope of the program means that some individuals are excluded and that some in the program must work fewer hours than desired.

The first large-scale program to incorporate both health and education components was Mexico’s Education, Health, and Nutrition Program (Progresa), launched in 1997.1 Following a similar model, Colombia has the Families in Action (FA) program, Honduras has the Family Assistance Program (PRAF), Jamaica has the Program of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH), Nicaragua has the Social Protection Network (RPS), and Turkey offers the Social Solidarity Fund (SSF). (...) Conditional cash transfer programs have also introduced other key design features that depart from traditional social assistance programs. (...) Colombia’s FA is the flagship program of the three safety net programs introduced in 2001 to provide relief from the effects of an economic recession.

The need for safer and more secure code is true for every kind of software, but becomes critical for any program that interacts with other programs over a network. (...) Special care is needed when the program invokes some external code (a library function, another program, or a system service). (...) The purpose of assertions is to verify those assumptions that must be true if the program is correct, and to help to catch program bugs as early as possible in the program execution flow.
