Program scale and cost

program-scale-and-cost The extent of cash transfer programming in Sub-Saharan Africa has grown quickly since 2000. Read the Prevalence of CTs in Sub-Saharan Africa to see how CTs have been used with increasing frequency across the region. Coverage by program and Average number of beneficiaries per program explain the scale of these programs. An ever-present concern in designing and implementing CTs is how much the program will cost. Much of the difference in long-term cost depends on the number of beneficiaries reached by the program, the size of the transfers, and the labor required for administrative procedures. CCTs require additional outlay for monitoring conditions. Additional sections elaborate on Costs (including annual and total costs, and donor funding), and Coverage and costs in African CTs compared to CTs in other regions, and provide specific Case studies of program costs.
