This case study (coming soon) examines UNICEF’s No Lost Generation, or Min Ila, Program, which was a cash transfer program for displaced Syrian refugee children in Lebanon. The program provided referrals to complementary services, including psychosocial support, health services, and child protection, to help alleviate barriers to education beyond income. These services aimed to target obstacles (e.g., mental and physical health, and negative coping strategies) to school attendance. Min Ila was the only child-focused social assistance program for refugee families in Lebanon at the time. It reached approximately 50,000 children over two years. The program provided case transfers on a regular basis, referrals to complementary services, and household visits. A 2018 evaluation found the...
This delivery note focuses on a conditional cash transfer program in the Philippines. Called the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, which roughly translates into “building bridges for Filipino families” the initiative, first implemented in 2007, was designed to assist the poor by directly providing them with money. Unlike conventional social assistance programs, however, the beneficiaries received the grants only if they fulfilled certain conditions. Those conditions include enrolling their children in school and ensuring that they maintain attendance rates of at least 85 percent, taking their children on regular clinic visits for basic health services (such as immunization and growth monitoring), and regularly attending sessions where the beneficiaries learned about topics such as...
This delivery note examines the implementation of the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP). It particularly focuses on how Ghana fostered coordination among institutions and stakeholders, and how it adapted the program over time in response to evidence. From the mid-2000s through 2014, Ghana made significant gains in measures of human capital. The school enrollment rate rose and by 2011 had exceeded the world average. The likelihood that a 15-year-old child would survive to age 60 increased as well. One important step in Ghana’s effort to develop its human capital was the GSFP. This multi-sectoral program, initiated in 2005, had multiple objectives: it was a nutrition program, an education program, and a social safety net. The school feeding program had positive effects on learning...
Since its inception in 1988, Nepal’s Female Community Health Volunteer program had helped connect people in difficult-to-reach areas to the health system, but by the 2000s the Nepali government wanted to accomplish more. Many health outcomes were still poor, including high neonatal and infant mortality, and preventable infant- and child-specific diseases were among the top 10 leading causes of death in the country. In 2008, a Nepal-based non-governmental organization called Nyaya Health Nepal began working with the national health ministry to improve health services in one Nepali district. Development Challenge: The core development challenge that Nyaya’s pilot program aimed to address was strengthening the health system. There was low utilization of available health services and the...
Through a partnership with Japan and JICA, one of the main export markets for salmon, Chile has developed a highly successful domestic salmon farming industry as a strategy to boost economic growth and alleviate poverty. By introducing new salmon farming technologies, creating a supportive legal framework, and building a global market for Chilean salmon, Chile has become the world’s second-largest salmon exporter, after Norway. However, the industry’s rapid growth has taken an environmental toll, and reforms have become necessary to ensure the long-term sustainability of salmon farming as a major contributor to Chile’s economy. This delivery note analyzes some of the delivery challenges Chile has faced in growing its salmon farming industry over the last five decades.
Context On its return to democracy in the 1990s, Chile’s economy was growing at a rapid pace. But like many countries in the region, it had chronically underinvested in infrastructure during the economic doldrums of the 1980s. Roads, ports, and highways were decades old and inadequate for the growing economic activity. Also, from 1982 to 1992, private car ownership had grown by 45 percent to a total of 1.3 million vehicles (National Institute of Statistics, various years). Congestion and traffic accidents nearly doubled during that period. The Chilean government recognized the need for significant economic investment, particularly in roads and highways, to ensure continuing economic development. However, the government did not have sufficient capital or the technical know-how to carry out...
Case Study in brief: This case study explores how the Revitalizing Agriculture Incomes and New Markets (RAIN) program has promoted market systems development in the Acholi region in northern Uganda.

Development challenge: Low smallholder production and profitability, low agribusiness and trade performance Delivery challenge:Skilled manpower, awareness and communication strategy, reporting and supervision Lessons learned: 1) Leadership sits at the center of many of RAIN’s successes. Investments in building a collaborative, inquisitive team and promoting a culture of open communication made it possible to learn and adapt. 2) The practical effect of...
