Is Cash Transfer Programming ‘Fit for the Future’? – Executive Summary
This summary presents the results of a 2013 research study entitled, Is Cash Transfer Programming ‘Fit for the Future’?
The research was commissioned by the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) and undertaken by the Humanitarian Futures Programme (HFP), King’s College London. The project intends to understand how changes in the broader global and humanitarian landscape may evolve in the future (up to 2025), and how these changes might shape cash transfer programming (CTP).
The analysis examines these issues in the context of ongoing global dialogue on the future of humanitarianism, including the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals processes, the deliberations for the next iteration of the Hyogo Framework for Action, and the World Humanitarian Summit 2016. It is hoped that this report and the other project products will be widely disseminated, and their conclusions and recommendations debated at all levels within the sector. This process should result in a set of priorities that can serve as the basis for a forward-looking action agenda. Ideally, this agenda should be conceived by the full network of actors identified in this analysis who have an interest and role in the evolution of CTP.
This Executive Summary has been developed as a stand-alone document. It is complemented by the full-length Final Report and an Annex Package that contains the full set of products developed in the course of this research project.
This research was commissioned by CaLP, with the generous support of the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
