Abstract

The Social Assistance in Developing Countries Database aims to:
- provide a summary of the evidence available on the effectiveness of social assistance interventions in developing countries;
- focus on programmes seeking to combine the reduction and mitigation of poverty, with strengthening and facilitating household investments capable of preventing poverty and securing development in the longer term
- select programmes for inclusion in the database on the basis of the availability of information on design features, evaluation, size, scope, or significance;
- provide summary information on each programme in a way that can be easily referenced by DFID staff and others with only a basic level of technical expertise.

Version 5 updates information on existing programmes and incorporates information on the following programmes:
-Conditional cash transfers pilots in Kenya, Zambia, and Malawi
-Integrated poverty reduction programmes in Panama, and the Dominican Republic
-Conditional cash transfer programmes in Paraguay
-CHARS in Bangladesh combining climate change adaptation, asset protection and accumulation, and transfers
-Basic Income Grant Pilot in Namibia which, although not strictly a social assistance programme, will be of interest to users of the Database
