Savings-linked Conditional Cash Transfer Programs: A New Policy Approach to Global Poverty Reduction.”

Conditional cash transfer (CCT) programs and policies have been recognized as effective in achieving certain poverty alleviation goals, such as better health and education. Recently practitioners, researchers and policy makers have begun to explore the potential of CCTs to enhance broader economic inclusion and poverty reduction through wealth accumulation.
