- Re: Let's discuss cash transfer and sanitation - by: elizabethtilley November 26, 2014Great topic! In fact, my PhD research that I carried out in Durban, South Africa looks exactly at the impact of conditional cash transfers on sanitation- specifically UDDT use. I am just in the final stages of writing up, but should have something to share in early 2015. Basically though, small cash transfers were effective at getting people to use their UDD […]
