Impacts of Cash Transfers on Preventing Malnutrition in Yemen
Event Date: Sep 05, 2019
Time: 12:15 PM to 01:45 PM America/New York
Location: Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Host: Co-Organized by the International Food Policy Research Institute and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets
An impact evaluation of Yemen’s Cash for Nutrition program provides new evidence of the benefits of “cash plus” transfer programs to meet nutritional needs in conflict situations—a context in which rigorous evidence is scarce.
This event will review the findings on the combination of cash transfers with nutritional education provided by the Yemen Social Fund for Development and its positive impacts on key measures of child and maternal nutrition.
