About Social Safety Nets (SSNs) and Gender Report
At its launch early 2015, this systematic review was the most comprehensive analysis on the topic of "Social Safety Nets (SSN) and Gender". It was based on 145 impact evaluations (IEs) and 112 World Bank-supported investment projects. The inclusion of a portfolio review in a systematic review of impact evaluations is a novel element, intended to explore whether academic studies and World Bank projects have similar focus, identify similar indicators, and speak to similar policy concerns. The IEs in 128 individual studies were selected based on the following criteria: they had a narrow definition of “impact evaluation” (a quantitative evaluation adopting an experimental or quasi-experimental design and relying on a credible control group); they analyzed a relevant SSN intervention; they reported gender-disaggregated or gender-specific results (for example, access to prenatal care); and they were of rigorous quality. The projects in this analysis all include a relevant SSN and were approved during fiscal year 2003–13, whether or not they covered gender. This interactive report will help you get to the specific themes and topics quickly and will complement the full report that you can download for further research.
About Interactive Reports
Interactive Reports are designed with a “user-centric” approach to provide you with information quickly and easily from a specific report. Interactive Reports enable end-users to search for and locate specific content on the most common topics of interest without the time-consuming process of searching through the entire report.
Content in each Interactive Report has been organized by theme. Themes were developed based on the most common topics of interest in a specific report. Themes include topics - such as Outcomes, Types of Interventions, Context (Region/Country/Culture), and Timeframe - that enable you to narrow down report details into manageable, printable summaries.
