Final Evaluation of the Unconditional Cash and Voucher Response to the 2011–12 Crisis in Southern and Central Somalia
This report sets out to determine the effectiveness of the unconditional cash and voucher interventions in southern and central Somalia. This evaluation however cannot be limited to the interventions at hand. It necessarily considers the broader context that led to the failure of the humanitarian community to respond in a timely and adequate manner to the suffering of the Somali people. And the ever-present dilemma of delivering humanitarian assistance and fuelling an aid economy where aid, and the vulnerable populations for whom it was intended, are exploited by those with power.
