Cash transfer programmes are increasingly being used as a viable response in emergency situations throughout the world.
“Cash and vouchers together have risen from less than 1% in 2004 to around 6% of total humanitarian spending today. ”.
On top of the increase in volume, the context-dependant aspect of cash based interventions requires programmes to adopt greater flexibility. This results in very diverse programme modalities according to the situation in which they are implemented. Cash transfer programmes have been frequently used in the food security and livelihood sector but are now being used in other sectors such as WASH or shelter, and in cross-sectoral interventions.
In this period of increasing use and diversification of cash based interventions, there is a need to assess how cash programmes are being implemented globally.
In this light, CaLP developed a cash mapping tool aiming to visually represent the usage of cash transfer programmes at a global level.
