Electronic Cash Grants in Emergencies: Approaches and lessons learned

2015 — By Catholic Relief Services

Cash distributions in an emergency: A concept that seems so obvious today yet has only recently gained recognition within humanitarian response programming for its speed, efficiency and—above all—effectiveness.
This document provides a snapshot for humanitarian response peers on best practices, lessons learned and recommendations for electronic cash distributions during an emergency response. Based on a pilot project carried out by Catholic Relief Services/Caritas in Jordan for Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians, the following principles and practices can be adapted in diverse contexts.
