Abstract

Like other low- and middle-income countries, Colombia introduced changes to its cash transfer programmes so as to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 crisis. But without extending and carefully redesigning these programmes, many families and young people will face a precarious future once the pandemic is over, write Alejandra Álvarez-Iglesias (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), Philipp Hessel (Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá), Annette Bauer (Care Policy and Evaluation Centre, LSE), and Sara Evans-Lacko (Care Policy and Evaluation Centre, LSE).
