Food Price Crisis and Support to Social Protection Network
The main objective of this project is to use the evaluation of the CCT program Solidaridad:i) to study the impact of food price changes on poor households in the Dominican Republic, and how these households adjust to price increases along all the important dimensions: consumption and nutritional status, labor force participation, income and assets, and ii) to evaluate the impacts of one of the demand side policy response (CCT expansion) of the government to the food price crisis. Analyzing how households that are beneficiaries of the CCT Solidaridad have coped and are coping with changes in food prices will generate knowledge relevant to guide policy responses in the Dominican Republic, as well as in all other countries in the region that have CCTs programs; some of which have been using the expansion of their CCT programs as one of their main instrument to cope with aggregate shocks without much evidence of how effective and efficient are such policy responses.
