Concern Worldwide Zimbabwe together with WFP implemented the Zimbabwe Emergency Cash Transfer (ZECT) Pilot Programme in three districts of Zimbabwe as
part of the Vulnerable Feeding Group intervention for the food shortages of 2009/2010.
In spite of its limited duration (5 months) the ZECT was highly innovative and generated a range of positive effects. Drawing from extensive monitoring qualitative and
quantitative fieldwork conducted during the 5 months the programme lasted, this report reviews the effects of the programme on households, communities and markets, and
draws lessons learned for Concern Worldwide and for other organizations interested in emergency cash transfers in Zimbabwe and beyond.
