Learning from cash responses to the tsunami: Issue paper 3: Setting the value
This is the third of six issue papers which form part of a project to document learning around cash-based responses to the Indian Ocean tsunami. The project was funded by the British Red Cross, Save the Children UK, Oxfam GB, Mercy Corps and Concern Worldwide.
A key question in the design of cash transfer programmes is how much money to give people. This 5-page Issue Paper explores the questions around setting the value of the cash grant in four areas: grants to meet basic needs; grants to support shelter recovery; grants given via cash for work projects; and grants for livelihoods recovery.
