IOM Cash-Based Transfer – Update and Case Studies

November 2015 — By International Organization for Migration

Cash-based transfers have a long history in the support of people on the move. Cash or vouchers have been an element of the International Organization for Migration’s resettlement support for people moving to new countries, or returning to countries they had to leave. Increasingly over the last decade, IOM has applied and refined the lessons learned to deliver cash quickly and at scale in humanitarian emergencies, including protracted crises; and continued programming involving cash-based transfer in early recovery and reparations.

This series of case studies demonstrate the range and breadth of IOM’s cash programming. The objective is to demonstrate lessons to be learned, with the recognition that all projects should take into consideration the local context and needs of the affected population, which will differ in every case.
