PB2011-07: Accountability Mechanisms in the Implementation ofConditional Cash Transfer Programs

The Global appeal of conditional cash transfers (CCTs) as a development tool has been evident based on the number of developing countries that have implemented or are actively showing interest in them. Despite its popularity, past experiences indicate CCTs like the countrys Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) encounter substantial implementation challenges from a governance and anti-corruption perspective. Putting adequate accountability mechanisms in key CCT activities are therefore critical - especially when there is a scale-up of implementation " to mitigate the risks associated with CCT, and to effectively implement these programs.
