The Productive Safety Net Programme in Ethiopia: impacts on children’s schooling, labour and nutritional status
3ie Impact Evaluation Report 55
This study examines whether Ethiopia’s Productive Safety Net Programme (PNSP) has had additional impacts on children’s schooling, labour and nutrition. The PSNP contains a mix of public works employment and unconditional transfers. The study identified effects of participation in the public works programme by coming outcomes of PSNP beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. The impact of PSNP on children’s schooling and labour outcomes vary across years. Researchers found no evidence that the PSNP reduces chronic or acute undernutrition.
