Operationalizing Emergency MPCA: Learning from the Ramadi displacement, May to July 2015

2015 — By Cash and Livelihoods Consortium for Iraq

Iraq is an upper middle-income country with high literacy rates, sound infrastructure, functioning markets, and a comprehensive hawala network that covers all 18 governorates, making it a potentially appropriate context for cash transfer programs. Despite this apparent enabling environment, cash transfers have remained on the periphery of the Iraq humanitarian response.

This report focuses on the operational effectiveness of the emergency multi-purpose cash assistance in Iraq. Partners organizations of the Cash Alliance in Iraq present key recommendations from an evolved understanding of vulnerability, effective targeting, co-ordination, and potential exit pathways from a humanitarian response to the government.
