This policy brief presents the findings of an Evidence Gap Map (EGM) that depicts the available evidence on cash transfers and cash plus programs across a wide range of outcomes in low- and middle-income countries. The EGM facilitates evidence-informed decision-making in social protection by enabling easy access to the existing rigorous evidence. It also seeks to address the current lack of a systematic mapping of the evidence on the impact of cash transfers. This policy brief pinpoints critical areas and populations for which limited or no evidence exists, and hence suggests potential avenues for closing those knowledge gaps.
