Response options analysis and planning for Fafan zone (Somali region, Ethiopia)

2018 — By The Cash Learning Partnership, Danish Refugee Council, Mercy Corps, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Save the Children

Between October 2017 and March 2018, the Consortium began the pilot in Ethiopia with the aim of providing technical and strategic support to country-based humanitarian organisations, enabling them to engage in collaborative assessments and decision making. Whilst the Consortium has not been conceived to provide direct assistance to crisis-affected populations, it is intended to have an indirect, positive impact on their lives, by means of influencing humanitarian actors to design better quality and more collaborative MPG programmes. As such, it supports and is line with the commitments made by donors and humanitarian partners as part of the Grand Bargain.

The pilot project provides information and analysis for selected woredas Fafan Zone in the Somali Region. It should be noted here that due to the varied nature of the Ethiopian context the findings of the pilot activities – which focused on Babile, Hereshen, Kabribeyah, and Tuliguled woredas in Fafan zone, Somali Region – are not generalizable beyond these woredas. However, for the woredas assessed the Consortium provided information on:

– Basic needs of crisis-affected people, through the Basic Needs Assessment (BNA)
– Minimum expenditure basket (MEB)
– Market functionality and related feasibility of CTP, through the Multi-Sector Market Assessment (MSMA)
– Availability of payment mechanisms and financial service providers
– Partners’ and government’s capacity to implement Cash Transfer Programming (CTP)
– Effectiveness of MPG, based on existing experiences
– SOPs for MPGs
