Cash Consortium of Iraq (CCI)
The Cash Consortium Iraq (CCI) was selected as a case study to illustrate a consortium model of inter-agency collaboration for multi-purpose cash assistance (MPCA), with a formal relationship between partners and a shared funding stream, both bilaterally to member agencies and through the lead agency. It is distinctive from other cases in that the consortium is ongoing and funded by multiple donors as part of a response in a protracted crisis. A multi-sector approach to cash, core to the strategy of the consortium, is also recognised as central to the
humanitarian response plan in Iraq.
