Tracking Spending on Cash Transfer Programming in a Humanitarian Context: Briefing
This briefing paper provides a brief overview of cash transfers by situating them within official development assistance (ODA) analysis. However the core of our analysis concentrates on tracking cash transfer programme spending in humanitarian aid. For our analysis of cash transfer spending in crisis situations we rely on the FTS as it only captures humanitarian aid and the data is reported in real-time. For a more detailed methodology please see Annex 1. It is important to note that figures for partial cash transfer programmes include the cost for the full project or programme and not only the cash transfer element, as it is impossible to extract this information from that which is reported.
