Cash transfers help to tackle poverty and vulnerability. During the last decade, middle income countries such as Brazil, Mexico and the Republic of South Africa have rapidly expanded their cash transfer schemes. The rapid and successful introduction of these programs indicates that cash transfers can contribute to increased resilience and pro-poor growth by serving as an effective risk management tool, empowering poor households to lift themselves out of poverty. There is currently a huge demand for the introduction and provision of basic social protection schemes in the Least Developed Countries-LDCs.

Sida, Svenska kyrkan (Church of Sweden), FAO Norden and SIANI invite you to seminar where the role of cash transfers in the context of social protection in stimulating local production and increasing resilience’s  of  rural communities  will be scrutinized.
