Evidence-building for Cash and Markets for WASH in Emergencies: Practices related to the use of multipurpose cash for WASH outcomes
This report aims specifically to:
- present current practices (and practice gaps) of the use of MPC for WASH outcomes in emergencies, identifying the contexts and conditions under which MPC is used and highlighting lessons learned
- in contexts where humanitarian actors use MPC as a tool to meet basic needs, support the involvement of WASH practitioners in the process of designing, delivering and monitoring MPCs when relevant, appropriate and feasible.
This report is one in a series of five on market-based programming (MBP) for WASH in emergencies. The other four reports in this study cover practices in MBP in the water, sanitation and hygiene subsectors
and a mapping of the evidence of MBP and WASH outcomes.
