What Kinds of Social Safety Net Transfers Work Best for the Rural Ultra Poor?

IFPRI events - 19 May, 2015 17:55
Time:  9:30-3:35 Location: 

Dhaka, Bangladesh

Abstract

On Tuesday, May 26, The Safety Net Transfer Modality Research Initiative (TMRI), jointly implemented by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP), will organize a seminar to present the final findings of the research.

Through this research, ultra-poor rural women with small children received food, cash, and nutrition behavior change communication (BCC) training in various combinations. Under the initiative, 4,000 ultra-poor women and their 21,600 family members in the north-western and southern regions of Bangladesh received a monthly transfer for 24 months from May 2012 to April 2014. The objective of the research was to generate definitive evidence on which transfer modalities work best for the ultra-poor in rural Bangladesh and determine their impact on household income, food security, and child nutrition.
