A Role for Social Protection Investments to Support Food and Nutrition Security - Lessons from Ghana

In-person and online - register on the CSIS website.

Cash transfer social protection programs have become increasingly prominent as a tool to combat food and nutrition insecurity worldwide.

In Ghana, under the U.S. Feed the Future initiative to reduce extreme poverty and the prevalence of stunting, USAID collaborated with UNICEF to expand the country’s flagship national social protection program, the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) Program, to a new group of beneficiaries: pregnant women and children under 12 months old.
 
Join the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Global Food Security Project and a panel of experts to launch a new report profiling the evolution of Ghana’s LEAP Program since 2008 and its current coverage, successes, and challenges. The report provides a snapshot of Ghana’s national household registry, LEAP’s transition to biometric identification, and the current debate about  graduation goal appropriateness.
