New CaLP Publication: Voices and Views of Beneficiaries on unconditional Cash Transfers. Democratic Republic of Congo, Nepal and Philippines

The Cash Learning Partnership is pleased to introduce its latest publication “Voices and Views of Beneficiaries on unconditional Cash Transfers. Democratic Republic of Congo, Nepal and Philippines”

The purpose of this study is to include the voices of recipients of unconditional cash transfers within the ongoing humanitarian sector discussion about the use of cash in crisis and disaster-affected settings.

The study asks beneficiaries of unconditional cash transfers in three countries, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nepal and Philippines, what works and what doesn’t work in their particular setting and uses their experiences to contextualise this. The study is small, but the questions the same as those engaging policy makers: what works about unconditional cash transfers? And, what should be changed or improved? 

A field research, conducted during August and September 2015, was supported and staffed by in-field humanitarian partner organizations (IFCR, NRC and  UNICEF) who have been directly involved in unconditional cash transfer programs.

This report, which counted with the generous support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC),is meant as a platform for beneficiaries to speak for themselves, share their experiences and knowledge as the humanitarian sectors continue to discuss the expansion and improvement of unconditional cash transfers as a means to advance humanitarian aid.
