On 30 and 31 January 2008, the Social Research Center (SRC) in Cairo hosted a workshop aimed at gathering insights and experiences for the design and implementation of a conditional cash transfer (CCT) pilot in Egypt. Both local and foreign experts (from Latin America and the UK) discussed current CCT programmes and how they could be adapted to suit the Egyptian social, political and economic landscape.

The overseas presenters included a range of experts from Latin America and the UK who have worked closely on such projects, including the two largest and longest-running CCT programs to date (Oportunidades in Mexico and Bolsa Familia in Brazil). The workshop concluded with an extensive group discussion lead by Dr Ragui Assaad of the Population Council in Egypt and a meeting with the Minister of Social Solidarity to exchange suggestions and critiques.
