Warnings from new analysis by UNICEF and Save the Children, show economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic could push up to 86 million more children into household poverty by the end of 2020, an increase of 15 per cent.
This paper proposes a framework to model household decision making on participation (or not) in cash transfer programs depending on whether a conditionality exists. The paper outlines the optimal size of the cash transfer such that a fixed government budget maximizes the poverty reduction.
This CSW63 side event hosted by UN Women, Sida and the Prime Minister's Office (Tanzania) explored how cash transfers can help reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) against women. Featuring research from the Cash Transfer and Intimate Partner Violence Research Collaborative, the Prevention Collaborative, IFPRI, the Transfer Project, UNICEF Innocenti, and the International Rescue Committee.
Join us for our CSW63 side event on Wednesday March 13th at UN Women, NYC.
Space is limited, please RSVP no later than 11 March to Yemarshet Sissay [email protected]
