Social Transfer Course: Designing and Implementing Social Transfer programmes

Date: 6-17 October 2014
Venue: Chiang Mai, Thailand


“Designing and Implementing Social Transfer programmes”
a course for policy makers, government officials and practitioners around the world.

Around the world, developing countries are increasingly recognising the value of social transfer programmes in reducing extreme poverty, with success stories in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The Economic Policy Research Institute (EPRI) and HelpAge International, together with the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) are offering a two-week course including a number of specialised modules aimed at providing participants with an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in the development of social transfer programmes. Participants will acquire tools required for the appropriate identification and successful design and implementation of these programmes.

The course aims to build the capacity of government policymakers and officials, representatives from bilateral and multilateral agencies, programme practitioners and staff members from non-governmental organisations. The course will serve those who want to more effectively design, implement and manage social transfer programmes with the goal of reducing poverty and better achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

A team of international experts, skilled professionals and leaders in the field will teach the course. The certificated course will be jointly accredited by the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance, the Economic Policy Research Institute and HelpAge International.
