Social funds as instruments for reducing childhood poverty: lessons from Save the Children's experience

Abstract

The article draws on Save the Children UK's experience of implementing elements of social fund financed anti-poverty programmes in Mali, Tajikistan and Mongolia. It briefly describes these programmes and SC's role within them and then sets out a framework for analysing how social funds could contribute to reducing childhood poverty.

An earlier preprint of this paper is appended.
