Project Details: Development Pathways was contracted by DFID Kenya through the Livelihoods Resource Centre (managed by HTSPE) to undertake a multi-method research review of targeting in the Orphans and Vulnerable Children Cash Transfer (CT-OVC). The project was led by Stephen Kidd (Team Leader) and Rebecca Calder, (Lead Research Supervisor) who undertook research herself and coordinated the deployment of the research team to 4 districts to interview stakeholders and recipients with an emphasis on qualitative research approaches – including focus groups and semi-structured interviews – to collect data on targeting processes.

Emily Wylde undertook an assessment of the theoretical accuracy of the Proxy Means Test methodology against the household survey data while Richard Chirchir reviewed management information system. The findings were presented to technical staff from the government and development partners in a validation workshop. Evidence based conclusions and recommendations drawn from the qualitative and quantitative research were then formulated into clear reports with key findings and recommendations for improvements highlighted. Other members of the team included Jonathan Sibley, Chris Cosgrove and Judith Sandford. 

Stephen Kidd was contracted to undertake a Review of Options for DFID to Support the Strengthening of Kenya’s National Social Protection Schemes. The purpose of the review was to identify opportunities for DFID to support the strengthening of the Older Persons’ Cash Transfer (OPCT) and Disability Grant. Consultations with relevant stakeholders at all levels in Kenya were undertaken and a report produced setting out the findings from the review and recommendations for DFID support.
