المساعدات النقدية متعددة الأغراض
المساعدات النقدية متعددة الأغراض عبارة عن تحويلات نقدية غير مقيدة يمكن للأشخاص المتضررين من الأزمات استخدامها لتغطية احتياجاتهم الأساسية. بحكم طبيعتها، تعد المساعدات النقدية متعددة الأغراض طريقة المساعدة التي توفر للناس أقصى درجة من الاختيار والمرونة والكرامة. وهناك أيضًا أدلّة متزايدة على أن تلبية الاحتياجات المتعددة أكثر فعالية من حيث التكلفة وفعالية من حيث التكلفة.
لكن هذا يتطلب طرقًا جديدة للتعاون بين الجهات الفاعلة في المجال الإنساني، في جميع مراحل دورة البرنامج وبين القطاعات. على الرغم من وجود أدوات قوية لدعم التعاون، إلّا أنه لم يتم تبنيها على نطاق واسع ولا تزال المساعدات النقدية متعددة الأغراض مستخدمة بطريقة مخصصة. ولا تزال هناك تحديات يتعين مواجهتها إذا أردنا أن نلائم المساعدات النقدية متعددة الأغراض بنجاح في النظام الإنساني.
