Systematic Review of the Impact of Employment Guarantee Schemes and Cash Transfers on the Poor

Abstract

This systematic review identifies and synthesizes the current evidence on employment guarantee schemes (EGSs) and cash transfers (CTs) in order to assess the effectiveness of these interventions in terms of poverty outcomes for the poor in low and middle income countries. The review describes and analyses the empirical evidence currently available, in terms of content, quality, and comparability, and identifies research gaps, offering a contribution to future evaluation and policy development.
