Examples and Good Practices on the Use of Multi-Purpose Cash in the Food Security Sector

1 June 2020 — By Global Food Security Cluster (gFSC)

This global Food Security Cluster (gFSC) document was produced by the Cash and Markets Working Group (CMWG) to highlight the role and engagement of food security actors through different country experiences and good practices.
In recent years, multi-purpose cash (MPC) has been adopted more widely to address the diverse needs of affected populations during and following crises. Efforts to harmonize and institutionalize MPC programming have increased as a result, with coordination around MPC initiatives improved and strengthened.

The document is not intended as a “how to”, but rather to provide examples of the operationalization of MPC that could be useful for the FSC as well as other sectors. This is a living document and will be updated at regular intervals by incorporating new good practices and/or global decisions affecting the MPC reporting and coordination.

The aim is also to create a shared understanding on reporting sectoral outcomes, thus avoiding double counting across clusters/sectors on MPC.
