Abstract: "The Kenya Hunger Safety Net Programme (HSNP) Pilot The HSNP is an unconditional cash transfer that aims to reduce poverty in four counties in the arid and semi-arid lands of northern Kenya. The pilot phase (2007–2013) was operated under the Ministry of State for the Development of Northern Kenya and funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and AusAid. During its pilot phase, the HSNP delivered regular cash transfers every two months to around 69,000 beneficiary households, targeted using three distinct methods: community-based targeting, dependency ratio, and a social pension (which targets individuals rather than households). The transfer started at a value of KES2,150 (USD21.48) and rose to KES3,500 (USD34.97) by the end of the evaluation period."(...)
