Long-term donor support

Legitimate concerns by policymakers call for long-term commitment to cash transfers in SSA


Some African leaders are concerned to support CTs that may only be supported by development partners for a limited time.
  • When donor funds disappear, they argue, the program will be at risk of doing the same. The more successful the CT has been, the more problems domestic politicians will be left to deal with in trying to close a popular program.
Some donors have begun to outline longer term frameworks for their support for social protection and CTs, which will help address these concerns.
