The Transfer Project will be holding its Research Workshop from April 6-8, 2016 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The meeting will bring together national governments, research institutions and international organizations to discuss latest developments on cash transfer programmes. Since 2008, the Transfer Project has accumulated a critical mass of evidence on the multiple impacts of government run, cash transfers in Africa.
The 2016 workshop will enter a new frontier for the Transfer Project, with the scope of topics and geographic focus broader than years before. Discussions will be held on planned or ongoing impact evaluations, as well as emerging findings, methodological gaps and unanswered questions around cash-plus livelihoods, agriculture interventions and nutrition. This is also the first year the workshop will highlight case studies and cash transfer evaluation experiences from Asia.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and UNICEF Ethiopia Country Offices will host the event, with Transfer Project partners from across UNICEF, FAO's From Protection to Production (PtoP) Project, Save the Children UK and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill leading various sessions.
