Social cash transfers can play an important role for human, economic and socio-political development. For long, they have been seen mainly as an instrument for poverty alleviation. Today, we know that they are also effective in preventing poverty and in tackling other, non-monetary dimensions of poverty (such as, malnutrition, bad health, low education), which in turn helps breaking the intergenerational transmission of poverty. Furthermore, cash transfers encourage low-income households to invest and become economically active and could potentially promote social inclusion, social cohesion, societal and political stability. The question is which types of social cash transfer schemes are most effective in achieving these different effects and under what conditions.
