The trend for conducting rigorous impact evaluations of development interventions has prompted many researchers to start looking more closely at public works programmes (PWPs). This study identifies design and implementation features that contribute to programme success or failure, highlighting which PWP model is appropriate in what context and why linkages to broader graduation strategies and other interventions are important.

Yemen’s high malnutrition rates have drawn global attention, highlighting the impact the country’s five-and-half-year civil war has had on its population. About 20 million Yemenis—70% of the population—are facing hunger, a 13% increase from 2017. Yemen is one of the most food insecure countries in the world. Long before the conflict began, child malnutrition was widespread. In 2013, 46.5% of children under five were stunted, or short and underweight for their age; 16.3% suffered from acute malnutrition.

Building linkages between humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and social protection (SP) has become an increasingly prominent topic over the past five years and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has been at the centre of this evolution. The objective of this resource set (the cribsheet and 3, soon to be 6, regional case studies) is to ensure that CaLP trainers and course participants in MENA (and elsewhere) have access to the most significant and relevant examples from the region on linking SP and humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA). The

Social protection programs are needed more than ever during periods of social upheaval, but are also likely to be even harder to implement successfully. Furthermore, social upheaval makes measuring the impact of such policies all the more difficult. We study the impact of a multi-faceted social protection program, often referred to as a “graduation” model program, in Yemen during a period of civil unrest. We are unable to measure outcomes for four years, thus much remains unknown about what transpired in the intermediary time.
