Making Child-Sensitive Social Protection Gender-responsive: Examples from Asia and Africa

This paper was developed by the CSSP Technical Working Group to provide CSSP practitioners in Save the Children with ideas on how to take gender equality forward.

This document provides some case studies regarding how gender inequalities have been analysed and responded to in Save the Children’s work on CSSP. The idea is to provide some practical “food for thought” on gender-responsive programming. Selected research from other interventions and global reviews is also drawn upon to help contextualize the case studies. The paper covers: (1) maternal cash transfers, child grants and family allowances; (2) public works programmes; and (3) school stipends.
