    Evaluating the impacts of the FAO’s Cash+ Programme in Mali 2021

    No results found.

    This report presents findings from a study of the economic and food security impacts of the FAO project "Productive safety nets as a tool to reinforce the resilience in the Sahel" (hereinafter referred to as the project/programme Cash+) that took place from April 2015 to February 2017. The project aimed to strengthen the resilience of households vulnerable to shocks and heavily affected by food insecurity and was carried out in two countries: Mali and Mauritania. Unconditional in-cash and in-kind transfers were distributed to the most vulnerable households, which also benefited from other training and technical activities which aimed to strengthen their productive capacity. This report focuses on Mali, where the FAO Cash+ project targeted 36 villages in the Nioro Cercle (“Cercle de Nioro du Sahel”) of Kayes region. Two sets of intervention of equal financial value have been provided to the beneficiaries: i) one called "Cash Only" consisting primarily of a cash transfer and ii) another called "Cash+" associating a cash transfer with distribution of goats, training on good practices of livestock breeding and raising awareness of children's nutrition. The main objective of this report is evaluating the impacts of the FAO’s Cash+ programme in Mali and investigating eventual heterogenous effects of the two types of treatment. Using data collected nine months after the project ended, we analyse its lasting impacts across various livelihood aspects, namely food security, dietary diversity, hygiene practices, food and non-food expenditures, livestock production, non-farm activities, aspirations and expectations.

    Des transferts productifs innovants (CASH+) au Mali
    Une approche pour renforcer la résilience des ménages les plus vulnérables dans la région de Kayes
    2017
    Also available in:

    Au Mali, l’Organisation des Nations Unies pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture (FAO) expérimente l’approche des «transferts productifs» (CASH+), mise en oeuvre avec succès depuis 2014 dans d’autres pays, notamment d’Afrique de l’Ouest. Le programme, d’une durée de 18 mois, associe des transferts monétaires non conditionnels à la fourniture d’intrants en nature pour l’élevage (noyaux de caprins et aliments pour le bétail) au bénéfice de 750 ménages vulnérables, soit environ 5 300 personnes, de 36 villages de la région de Kayes. Le ciblage des ménages les plus vulnérables a été réalisé selon l’approche HEA (analyse de l’économie des ménages). Au sein des ménages bénéficiaires, les femmes sont les récipiendaires des transferts dans 99 pour cent des cas.

    Productive Impacts of the Malawi Social Cash Transfer Programme 2015

    Cash transfer programmes have become an important tool for social protection and poverty reduction strategies in low- and middle-income countries. An increasing number of African governments have launched such programmes in the past ten years, especially to provide assistance to households caring for orphans and vulnerable children or to labour-constrained households. Cash transfer programmes in African countries have tended to be unconditional (i.e. regular and predictable transfers of money ar e given directly to beneficiary households without conditions or labour requirements) rather than conditional (i.e. recipients are required to meet certain conditions such as using basic health services or sending their children to school), which is more common in Latin America. Most of these programmes seek to reduce poverty and vulnerability by improving food consumption, school attendance, and nutritional and health status. The Malawi Social Cash Transfer (SCT) programme was initiated in 20 06 in the pilot district of Mchinji, providing cash grants to ultra-poor households without any able-bodied adult household members (‘labour-constrained’ households). The objectives of the programme include reducing poverty and hunger in vulnerable households and increasing school enrolment. A rigorous impact evaluation of the pilot in Mchinji district was designed and implemented during the pilot phase in 2007/08. Results from this initial evaluation indicated strong positive impacts of the pil ot on household food security, children’s schooling, health, and household possession of productive assets (Miller et al., 2010). The Government of Malawi (GoM) has gradually expanded the SCT to six additional districts across the country (Chitipa, Likoma, Machinga, Mangochi, Phalombe, and Salima), although it only operates at full scale in Likoma and Mchinji. The SCT is currently operational in seven districts and reaches over 30,000 ultra-poor and labour-constrained households and approximatel y 103,000 individuals. The current expansion of the SCT presents an important opportunity to evaluate the adjusted programme with a larger sample size across several districts.
