The quantitative impact analysis is an important input into a follow-up, recalibrated, LEWIE model—in terms of analysing how the behavioural implications of the cash transfer programme affects the demand and supply of goods and services within the local economy. The qualitative fieldwork can corroborate some of the assumptions of the LEWIE model regarding market functioning, particularly in terms of labour elasticity and inflation. Ideally qualitative fieldwork should be done before, during, and after the household surveys and the LEWIE modelling, serving as both an input into hypothesis making and design of quantitative data collection instruments, interpretation of results from both the quantitative impact analysis and the general equilibrium modelling.

Advising that the link that should be made between research and policy development is one of ‘contribution’. In terms of policy influencing approaches, there is consensus that the medium may be as important as the message, and that factors such as accessible and appropriate language, presentation and packaging, and authorship by known and respected individuals play a key role in take-up (Beynon et al. 2012). Where research is to be effective a cooperative relationship based on trust and understanding between the evidence creator, advocate, and policy target is important.

Working in tandem with the Transfer Project, the PtoP project is a collaborative effort between the FAO, UNICEF, and national governments, which explores the linkages between social protection, agriculture, and rural development by assessing the impact of cash transfer programmes on productive outcomes and the local economy. The objective is to understand these potential linkages in order to strengthen coordination between social and productive policies. As such, the Transfer Project through the PtoP and other initiatives described in this book moves beyond the evaluations of cash transfer programmes conducted previously.
