What Role Can Big Cash Play in Policy?
Ngaire Woods is hosting Isobel Coleman for a conversation about her role as Chief Operating Officer for GiveDirectly, a nonprofit organisation that helps families living in extreme poverty by making unconditional cash transfers to them via mobile phone. During the conversation, Isobel will discuss the organisation’s efforts to nudge policymakers toward considering bigger cash transfers, share new experimental evidence GiveDirectly is generating on cash operations, and give insights on how she sees the policy landscape on cash transfers evolving in the future.
