Conditional Cash Transfers: Reducing Present and Future Poverty
Conditional Cash Transfers: Reducing Present and Future Poverty lays out a conceptual framework that considers the economic and political rationale for CCTs; reviews the very rich evidence that has accumulated on CCTs, especially arising from impact evaluations; discusses how the conceptual framework and the evidence on impacts should inform the design of CCT programs in practice; and it considers where CCTs fit in the context of broader social policies. · The World Bank.
