Making the Most of Cash at Scale: Policy paper

10 October 2023 — By Diana Tonea, Vicente Palacios

This Policy Brief draws out key messages from Mercy Corps’ Cash at Scale study and makes recommendations for the better use of cash at scale. This explores the potential of cash at scale to meet increasing humanitarian needs and deliver people-centric response.

For Mercy Corps, cash at scale to date has been delivered via consortium models. Over the past few years, Mercy Corps has led cash consortia around the globe, delivering cash at scale with partners to meet critical basic needs.

Compared to single-agency led operations, successful consortia generally drive the quality and effectiveness of cash at scale – as such, the consortium model has become integral to ongoing discussions on cash at scale.
