There is a growing recognition in the humanitarian sector that in an emergency, cash transfers and vouchers can be appropriate and effective tools to support populations affected by disasters in a way that maintains dignity and choice for beneficiaries while stimulating local economies and markets.
The Cash Learning Partnership aims to improve the quality of emergency cash transfer and voucher programming across the humanitarian sector.
At the end of last year, CaLP introduced a new piece of research on electronic transfers focusing on three related components:
- Implementation guidelines
- Code of conduct
The research is still going strong. Click here to read the latest update.
The Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping team of WFP recently finalised a market study on the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya. The study explores market dynamics and financial service access for pastoral communities.
A new web resource on Household Economy Approach (HEA) and Cost of the Diet (CoD) now exists. Gathering more than 200 reports, it aims to push practitioners to share and exchange on experiences. It includes an interactive map, a forum, guidelines and a training and assessment calendar.
For more information, go to the HEA/CoD website.
To access more HEA reports from Sahel, a dedicated platform has been set up where reports in French are available.
