Benazir Income Support Program Graduation Strategy

(August 2009 - January 2010)

This project strategizes graduation of Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) from a cash transfer program into a Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT). BISP has started as simple cash transfer program providing cash to poor and vulnerable households. It is proposed that if BISP is to become sustainable and an effective tool for poverty alleviation; it should improve human capital conditions of participating households. Evaluation reports of CCT programs in Latin America and elsewhere were incorporated in the graduation strategy. The project was commissioned by the World Bank.
