CONFERENCE: Conditional Cash Transfer Empowerment of Women – Peru, Bolivia & Ecuador. 6 December. London

CARE International UK is hosting a panel discussion to launch a recent report into the impact of Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. These programmes support extremely poor households with a cash subsidy. The transfer is usually conditional on children’s attendance at school and health checks and evaluations have shown they have succeeded in improving children’s school attendance, and nutritional and health indicators. But there is comparatively less evidence on whether the CCTs address women’s needs and rights.

Traditionally the impact of CCTs have focused on children. This event will present recent research on the relevance of these programmes on gender equity and women’s empowerment.

Speakers will include Maxine Molyneux (Director of the Institute for the Study of the Americas) and Nicole Jones (ODI). Guests will be invited to ask questions during the discussion.
