    Social protection has been recognized as a key strategy to address poverty, vulnerability and social exclusion in Lesotho. As a result, the Government, with support from UNICEF and the European Union, developed the Child Grants Programme (CGP), which provides unconditional cash transfers to poor and vulnerable households registered in the National Information System for Social Assistance (NISSA). The quantitative impact evaluation presented in this report seeks to document the welfare and economic impacts of CGP and SPRINGS on direct beneficiaries and assess whether combining the cash transfers with a package of rural development interventions can create positive synergies at both individual and household level, especially in relation to income generating activities and nutrition. This paper is being published in the context of a partnership between FAO, IFAD and the Universidad de los Andes (UNIANDES) and its Centro de Estudios en Desarrollo Económico (CEDE) based in Bogotá, Colombia.

    Rural livelihoods and social protection (SP) are highly correlated in Africa. The poor rural population makes the larger share of social protection clients on the continent. Improving coherence between social protection and other sources of rural earnings have the potential to improve the well-being of the rural poor. Despite this, the effort to advance articulation of SP with other rural development programmes and projects has often been undermined by the sectoral approach often pursued in most African countries, including Ethiopia. This study is therefore meant to assess the coherence between social protection, health and nutrition services, and agriculture by taking the case of Improved Nutrition through Integrated Basic Social Services with Social Cash Transfer (IN-SCT) in Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) setting in Ethiopia. The IN-SCT as an integral part of PSNP 4, was designed to pilot specific elements of PSNP4 (i.e. health/nutrition service linkage and nutrition sensitive agriculture) for scaling up during the roll out of the programme. This paper is being published in the context of a partnership between FAO, IFAD and the Universidad de los Andes (UNIANDES) and its Centro de Estudios en Desarrollo Económico (CEDE) based in Bogotá, Colombia.

    The case of the Improved Nutrition through Integrated Basic Social Services with Social Cash Transfer/ Productive Safety Net Programme (IN-SCT/PSNP) pilot programme in Ethiopia

    The Integrated Nutrition Social Cash Transfer (IN-SCT) pilot project was embedded within Ethiopia’s Productive Safety Net Programme phase 4 (PSNP4). The PSNP4 programme supports food insecure households through two components: a cash transfer component that requires the recipient to participate in public work activities or to comply with soft conditionalities on access to social and health services; and a livelihood support component. This evaluation report presents the impacts of PSNP/IN-SCT on productive outcomes ranging from crop and livestock production to labour supply, non-farm businesses, use of inputs and the like. The report is part of a wider evaluation study that brings together IFPRI, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at University of Sussex and Cornell University. While these organizations set up the study design and focused their analyses of impacts on outcomes related to food security, hygiene, access to health services and nutritional status, FAO has contributed by analysing the productive impacts of the programme. This paper is being published in the context of a partnership between FAO, IFAD and the Universidad de los Andes (UNIANDES) and its Centro de Estudios en Desarrollo Económico (CEDE) based in Bogotá, Colombia.
