Poverty is a complicated dilemma that has been facing Egypt over years, especially over the last three years with the uprising. In spite of the already existing social assistance schemes in Egypt, a need is created for reforming these schemes or introducing new ones. Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) have been gaining popularity over the last decade in many countries all over the world as it breaks the cycle of intergenerational poverty through boosting the demand for education and health-related services. As CCTs did not have the chance to flourish in Egypt, due to the uprising in 2011, this research tests for the effectiveness of CCTs over unconditional yet targeted schemes in the Egyptian context. As Egypt is not a homogenous country, the results of the conditionality test vary from one governorate to another in spite of the general remarks concluded from the test. The research also presents a simulation for the different stages that a CCTs pilot scheme would go through if it is to be implemented in Egypt. Throughout the research, experiences of other countries implementing CCTs are included with a special focus on four countries; Turkey, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Morocco.
