Cash Preparedness in Senegal: Cash Transfer Mechanisms

2013 — By Kokoévi Sossouvi

Recognizing the growing importance of cash-based responses in humanitarian interventions and building on its own experience of implementing cash transfer programs through local partner organizations in Senegal in 2010 and 2012, Oxfam America sought to hire a consultant to determine the most feasible option(s) for transferring cash at scale in the most timely and efficient manner in future emergencies and to make recommendations for preparedness actions including technical capacity, contingency planning, improved coordination, and internal systems. These recommendations will also include the type of data that should be collected in future assessments using KoBo and when and where this data should be collected.

This report presents the findings related to the commercial cash transfer mechanisms available to support humanitarian interventions.
