Integrating Public Works and Transfers in Ethiopia: An Innovative Approach to Social Protection, Employment and Decent Work

What is the relevance of the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) in Ethiopia for other countries implementing or considering public works or transfer (cash and/or food) programmes? PSNP integrates income and employment through public works, with transfers to labour-constrained households in a programme that has more than 8 million beneficiaries. Presumably it holds important lessons and implications for other countries.
