    This report synthesizes the analysis and findings of a set of six country case studies that explore the impact of cash transfer programmes on household economic decision-making and the local economy in sub-Saharan Africa. The six countries are Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi and Zimbabwe. The research is being carried out under the auspices of the “From Protection to Production” (PtoP) project, a four-year collaboration between the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United King dom Department for International Development (DFID) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The PtoP is part of a larger effort, the Transfer Project – jointly implemented by UNICEF, Save the Children and the University of North Carolina – that supports the implementation of cash transfer evaluations in sub-Saharan Africa. The research is intended as a complement to other studies of cash transfer programmes that focus more on social indicators such as health and e ducation outcomes. It therefore covers themes such as the extent to which cash transfers can help households to manage risk, overcome credit constraints, make productive investments and improve their access to markets, as well as their effect in stimulating local economies. It also refers to analysis from other studies, in particular those conducted under the PtoP project, in order to strengthen the integration of data. The six country case studies were carried out by Oxford Policy Management ( OPM), a development consultancy in the United Kingdom, in partnership with local research organizations and researchers. Each study had an individual lead researcher from OPM; the overall project managers for the six-country study were Simon Brook and Valentina Barca of OPM. The technical Team Leader was Jeremy Holland, an OPM Associate. Pamela Pozarny of FAO provided technical oversight and contributed to the field research in all six countries, and to this final synthesis report.

    This brief is based on data collected during qualitative field work in March 2014 and forms part of an overall impact evaluation implemented by the University of North Carolina, UNICEF, the Center for Social Research and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The qualitative research is part of a comparative six-country study that explores the impact of cash transfer programmes on household economic decision-making, the local economy and social networks in sub-Saharan Africa as part of the From Protection to Production (PtoP) project. Districts sampled for this study included Salima in the central region, and Phalombe in the south. The study was carried out through focus groups and key informant interviews using participatory methods. A range of selected tools was employed, including social mapping, livelihood analysis, institutional analysis (Venn diagrams) and household income and expenditure analysis.

    Zimbabwe country case study report

    This report presents analysis and findings from a qualitative research case study conducted in October 2012 in Zimbabwe, the third of a sixcountry study of the economic impact of cash transfer programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. The Harmonised Social Cash Transfer (HSCT) was introduced in 2011 by the Ministry of Labour and Social Services (MoLSS) to “strengthen purchasing power of 55 000 ultra-poor households who are labour constrained through cash transfer”. During phase 1 of the programme (from 2011 to 2012) 10 districts were targeted for HSCT coverage. In total, 236 458 households were surveyed and 18 637 households were identified as labour constrained and food poor. The research focuses on this stage.
