Description

Does varying the delivery of social protection and poverty reduction interventions entail a trade-off between cost and impact? This webinar introduces impact evaluation results from an economic inclusion pilot called the graduation approach that combines social protection, livelihoods development, financial inclusion, and social empowerment. This innovative program helps poor households break the cycle of poverty through varied group-based interventions including asset transfers and coaching.

Objectives

Webinar attendees will have the chance to engage with the speakers and:

  • Learn factors that determine the optimal coaching model in social protection for economic inclusion programs 
  • Understand three program variations to test the relative performance and cost-effectiveness
  • Offer insights for governments looking to scale up social protection for economic inclusion programs in a cost-effective manner
