Evaluation Of The Social Cash Transfers Pilot Programme Tigray Region, Ethiopia

Published on 5 December 2012

The International Food Policy Research Institute, together with its collaborators, the Institute of Development Studies and the Department of Economics, Mekelle University, are responsible for the evaluation of the SCTPP. Their first report (Berhane et al. 2012) outlined the approach they proposed for this evaluation work.

This report, the second to be produced, is based on quantitative data collected at the individual, household, and tabia level in May-June 2012 and qualitative data collected using key informant interviews, focus group discussions, and participatory appraisal activities in July-August 2012. Subsequent work, to be based on further quantitative and qualitative data collection, will focus on the impact of the SCTPP on a wide range of indicators while also deepening our understanding of the strengths and limitations of program implementation.

This report has two objectives:

1. Provide basic descriptive statistics on the well-being, livelihoods, schooling, and health of individuals and households of both SCTPP participants and nonparticipants living in Abi Adi and Hintalo Wajirat; and

2. Assess a number of operational aspects of the SCTPP, including the role of Community Care Coalitions; pay processes; targeting; and appeals and grievances.
