Cash Transfers aim at raising the living standards of the poor through safety nets. The transferred cash are mostly invested in their farming activities, petty trading, education of children, households medical care, support household feeding and many more. The ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals may be possible if other linkages are brought on board. One such linkage is the Conditional Cash Transfer which has a host of conditions to be achieved to qualify a beneficiaries to be sustained on the Programme. It is believed that, when there is mass achievements in these conditionalities, then societies are heading towards the achievement of some Sustainable Development Goals. Therefore Cash Transfers conditionalities have strong associations with the global efforts in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
