Over the last several decades, the Government of India with State Governments have introduced several cash transfer programmes with an aim to improve social welfare outcomes. While social protection programmes in India have helped to reduce poverty significantly, they are not without their problems and there is limited credible evidence on the impact of these programs on outcomes. In the webinar, we will try to address implementation challenges and policy solutions to ensure ease of access of the vulnerable population.
This necessitates the need to create a space to have the discussions around this issue. Thereby, to facilitate a discussion International Growth Centre (IGC) of London School of Economics (LSE) and Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI) is organising a webinar on ''Strengthening Social Protection' on 1st March 2021 at 15:30 IST - 17:00 IST.
Panellists: Arvind Chaudhary (Government of Bihar), Jean Drèze (Delhi School of Economics and Ranchi University), Maitreesh Ghatak (London School of Economics), Priya Nanda (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), and Sudha Narayanan (International Food Policy Research Institute)
