Conditional cash transfer programs, challenges for a second generation to increase human development?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

AED is developing a policy brief on the possible issues to address the increase of human development in Latin America through a possible option for a second generation of Conditional Cash Transfer programs (CCTs). The goal of this brief is to explore the overall accomplishments CCTs have had in the region, especially in education and health, and what challenges will be faced by potential second generation CCTS.

CCTs have successfully increased access to education and health, and have increased school attendance and reduced drop out rates across LAC. They have also empowered women who are the sole receivers of the cash transferred to households, and have decreased poverty levels by breaking the cycle of inter-generational poverty. Because of the trajectory of CCTs in the region, AED is looking at the challenges these have faced in terms of increased demand of social services and consequently the affects on the quality of these services.

Based on the above findings, AED suggests options for a second generation of programs that address quality and supply shortages, and concentrate on reaching the urban poor. The brief concludes that in order for this second generation of programs to succeed and be sustainable, countries need to increase the quality of services. To do this, AED recommends:

• To develop an integrated social information platform for decision making and transparency (provide case studies of LAC)
• To expand vocational training programs in schools
• To build strong social policies that integrate CCTs into the broader policy framework
