The graduation approach is expected to grow in scale and influence, with strong demand from governments to create nationally scaled programs. Governments and other implementers are showing keen interest in innovations to (1) adapt the approach to additional vulnerable segments, such as refugees, extreme poor urban households, or disadvantaged youth; (2) expand the range of income-earning options beyond rural livelihoods; and (3) improve cost-effectiveness through measures such as digitization of transfers and financial services or group-based delivery of coaching and social support.

This Brief discusses early lessons from the implementation of the graduation model.
