Tunaydbah Cash and Market Assessment – International Rescue Committee

June 2021 — By IRC

Following the influx of refugees from the Tigray region of Ethiopia into Sudan in late 2020, the IRC launched an emergency response focused on primary healthcare, environmental health, and protection. To ensure people can meet their basic needs and avoid negative coping strategies, the IRC secured funding to launch an emergency multipurpose cash assistance response to complement ongoing programs in the areas of health, WASH, and protection. An initial desk review and engagement with key stakeholders in early 2021 helped to clarify the feasibility of a cash-based response, and the purpose of this current assessment was to validate those earlier findings and provide additional information on cash feasibility, market capacity and operational considerations to support the project startup.

The objectives of the Tunaydbah cash and market assessment were to:

• Determine the best cash delivery mechanism, transfer modality, and transfer value to the refugee population

• Understand and determine the targeting and registration approach including for host communities

• Assess the market capacity and availability of goods and services

• Identify risks and mitigation measures for the cash program

• Conduct stakeholder mapping of cash actors, both current and planned
