Webinar Presentation - Promoting Early Childhood Development Through Combining Cash Transfers and Parenting Programs

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 9 May 2019. In this webinar, presenters have summarized key conclusions from the review of 10 examples of combining cash transfer and parenting interventions and talked about four models for structuring the combination: integrated, convergence, alignment, and piggy-backing. They also highlighted promising evidence for combining the interventions, where adding the parenting program to the cash transfer program has improved some parental practices and child development outcomes, with results in cognition and language.
