Evaluating Kenya’s Hunger Safety Net Programme (2)

The Hunger Safety Net Programme (HSNP) cash transfer programme works with extremely poor populations in northern Kenya. Oxford Policy Management has been evaluating HSNP, and we’re sharing a series of data visualisation outputs from our evaluation this Autumn. Part one examined how recipients spend their cash transfer; now part two examines some of the HSNPs local impacts.

Part two: How has HSNP impacted the local economy?

The following visualisations look at the impact of HSNP cash transfers on businesses near pay points, established village businesses, on women’s participation in local economies, and on prices.

1/3 — Effects for businesses near pay points
2/3 — Effects for established businesses in villages

Finally, here’s the big picture of HSNP cash transfer impacts on the local economy. For more information on the Kenya HSNP visit www.hsnp.or.ke; for details on OPM’s evaluation of the programme, please visit the OPM website.
