Somalia Donor Working Group (DWG) – Safety Net Terms of Reference (ToR)

2018 — By Somalia Donor Working Group

Large scale cash and voucher transfers have formed the basis of the humanitarian response to the 2016-18 drought (and threat of famine) in Somalia and successfully so. While sporadic small scale cash transfer projects in the past lacked coordination and coherence, this time a great deal of effort has been expended by donors and partners to better harmonize the transfers into a cohesive single programme approach, especially regarding the unrestricted multi-purpose cash primarily delivered through the mobile phone network (Mobile Money). While these transfers will continue to assist those in need throughout 2018, there is now an increasing appetite to transform the humanitarian cash transfer programme into a longer-term predictable and sustainable safety net, that will eventually be scalable in order to include both chronic and transitory caseloads.
