No small change: Oxfam GB Malawi and Zambia emergency cash transfer projects: A synthesis of key learning

June 2006 — By Paul Harvey, Kevin Savage

This learning document uses Oxfam GB’s experience of emergency cash transfer programming in Malawi and Zambia to draw out some important lessons in using cash. It examines the two programmes and the findings of the evaluations and asks the question, “Is cash more cost-effective than food aid?” Finally, it provides some useful factors to consider in future cash interventions.
