This project brief outlines what cash transfer programmes are, why we should expect economic impacts, how these would happen and why this is important. It then describes the From Protection to Production (PtoP) project. The project is a collaborative effort with UNICEF-ESARO and six countries in the region, supported by funding from the DFID Research and Evidence Division.
