Case Study

Dowa emergency cash transfer, Malawi

November 2007 — By RHVP

This case study looks at the innovative Concern Worldwide project which provided monthly cash transfers to beneficiary households using smartcards utilising mobile ATMs to deliver the cash. The report examines the choice of programme delivery mechanism, the targeting of beneficiaries, coordination, cost effectiveness and effects of markets, including protection against prices rises. The report also looks at the social and household effects, details the strengths and weaknesses of the programme and draws policy lessons.
