Conditional cash transfer programmes and labour inclusion

Conditional cash transfer (CCT) programmes aimed at families with children sprang up in the mid-1990s in Brazil and Mexico, with the aim of addressing two simultaneous objectives: (i) reduce poverty in the short term, by boosting poor families’ consumption via monetary transfers, and (ii) reduce poverty in the long term by building the human capacities of children, adolescents and young people via conditionalities. The hypothesis was that the combination of transfers and conditionalities would held to prevent poverty form being passed on to the next generation.
