What are the ways to ensure that scholarships, conditional cash
transfers and free school meals actually reach their intended
beneficiaries? This book assumes that different models of design,
targeting, and management of pro-poor incentives can prove more or
less successful in maximizing efficiency, transparency, and
accountability, and in minimizing the likelihood of errors, fraud
and corrupt practices.
The authors argue that deliberate actions taken to confront
related corruption risks, such as simplified targeting, legal
definition of responsibilities, local transparency committees,
school display boards, appeals mechanisms, informal whistle-blowing
and social audits, among others, are of greater importance than the
adopted incentive model. They conclude by highlighting the value of
'mutual accountability systems', where all actors are mutually
accountable and subject to checks and balances.
