If universal transfers are not fiscally or politically feasible, a promising intervention is to send cash transfers to those who meet some eligibility criteria. Evidence from Indonesia on how to accurately and cost-effectively identify eligible individuals can help inform the design of cash transfer programs.
Researchers conducted a randomized evaluation with the Indonesian government that compared self-targeting to automatic screening in the context of a conditional cash transfer program. Requiring households to apply for a cash transfer program in Indonesia discouraged rich households from seeking out benefits and identified a relatively poorer group of beneficiaries.
International remittances are an important financial tool for many developing countries, and many organizations offer financial products or financial education services to help families manage the remittances they receive. Researchers provided families with financial products and financial education in the Philippines to test whether the two services influenced each other.
When resources are constrained, how can governments ensure that they are delivering social protection programs in the most cost-effective way? Researchers partnered with the Indonesian government to design and test how identification cards affected program outcomes. View a recording of Bambang Widianto and Rema Hanna discussing this research partnership and its policy implications.
