Two important types of social protection schemes in operations in Bangladesh are cash transfer schemes and food assisted schemes. They entail different types of cost to implement. Moreover, their impacts on individual, households, community and country may vary considerably. NSSS (2015) recommended to convert most of the food assisted schemes to cash schemes in a phased manner. Such a move may require better understanding of cost and benefits of these schemes. Accordingly, a Cost Benefit ratio study to determine the value for money or cost effectiveness has conducted for selected cash and food assisted
schemes implemented in Bangladesh.
