The study outlined in this article is an initiative of Save the Children UK. It is a synthesis of the evidence around survival, education, and protection in humanitarian and non-humanitarian contexts. This research brief provides a compact account of a longer report that works to fill the evidence gap on the implications on the use of cash transfer programming for children’s wellbeing. It reviews a list of indicators around outcomes for children in health, food security, nutrition, protection, and education. These indicators focus on those that directly affect children and those that indirectly concern children.
