Webinar Presentation: Social cash transfers, household targeting and generational relations in Malawi and Lesotho

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 29 October 2019. This webinar reported on a four-year ESRC-DFID-funded research project that explored in depth the impacts of three social cash transfer programmes on relationships within and between households in rural communities in Malawi and Lesotho. The schemes (Lesotho’s child grants and old age pensions and Malawi’s social cash transfer programme) target individuals or households based on different criteria. The research team found that while all three cash transfers are viewed by recipients as invaluable for poverty reduction, their full effects depend on how they intervene in social relations.
