What Works to Improve Outcomes for Children? A rapid evidence assessment of cash plus programmes in Low- and Middle-Income Countries, informed by Social and Behaviour Change (SBC) strategies

In order to improve the effectiveness of social protection in addressing these multidimensional needs, cash transfers are modified to cash-plus interventions by combining them with additional elements, such as in-kind resources, behaviour change interventions and links to other social services.  SBC components of cash-plus interventions aim to address the drivers of behaviours that affect children’s well-being.

The aims of this rapid evidence assessment are:
• Assess the effectiveness of cash transfers combined with social and behaviour change (SBC) components to improve outcomes for children
• Identify which types of SBC are effective in improving outcomes
• Identify the contextual factors that are necessary to successfully deliver cash-plus interventions with SBC components
