This video shows the impacts of the Social Cash Transfer (SCT) Programme in Zambia. The main objective of the SCT is to reduce extreme poverty and to prevent its transmission across generations. Results from the impact evaluation carried out by FAO, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and American Institutes for Research show that the programme is having positive impacts such as increased food security, improved child wellbeing, improved living conditions and increased productivity and ownership of productive assets.
