A resource for development practitioners: short version
A European Commission Reference Document aims to deepen the understanding of a concept and present good practices in order to stimulate discussions around the practicalities of aid in regard to that particular concept. The Reference Document Social transfers in the fight against hunger — A resource for development practitioners is intended as a resource to support the practical integration of social transfers into programmes addressing hunger in development cooperation. The Reference Document is targeted primarily at development practitioners and aid administrators working within EU... Delegations and offices of Member States and is intended to offer background information (terminology and basic features, arguments in favour of social transfers, field-level insights, etc.) to those with little familiarity of social transfers. It can also be a tool to stimulate and guide discussions for individuals already familiar with these types of interventions. The Reference Document also contains references to a number of useful existing materials (publications, training courses, websites, etc.) for readers who would like to deepen their knowledge on a specific topic. This present document provides an overview of the content of the Reference Document. It follows its overall structure and presents its key messages. It is worth noting that the Reference Document was written so that each chapter could be read independently, according to the immediate needs of the reader.
