About the courses

The flagship course Designing and Implementing Social Transfer Programmes is a two-week course aimed at providing policy makers, government officials and practitioners with an in depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in the development of social transfer programmes.

Course options

The first week of the course covers the key topics in relationship to social cash transfers including the role of cash transfers, identification of appropriate instruments, design and implementation issues.

Theme-oriented sessions and technical skills-building workshops are supported by practical case studies and field trips to see Thailand's social transfer scheme in action.
