Afghanistan Emergency Response Mechanism (ERM)


The Afghanistan Emergency Response Mechanism (ERM) was selected as a case study to illustrate the ‘alliance’ form of inter-agency collaboration for sector-focused cash assistance, with semi-formal relationships and separate funding flows between members. It is distinctive from other cases in that cash assistance is, for the vast majority of beneficiaries, provided by members on a one-off basis in response to immediate shocks and displacement.
