Abstract

Over the last decade and a half, conditional cash transfer (CCT) programmes?together with other non-contributory social protection programmes such as social pensions ? have become the main gateway into social protection systems for poor and vulnerable populations in Latin America and the Caribbean, which were long excluded from any social protection benefit. Today, CCTs cover 127 million people, or 21 per cent of the region?s population. In several countries?including Brazil and Mexico?these programmes, which grant families a cash transfer on condition that they fulfil specific commitments aimed at improving their human capacities, have contributed significantly to reduce poverty and inequality.
