Unconditional Cash Grants for Relief and Recovery in Rizal and Laguna, The Philippines (Post-Typhoon Ketsana)

31 January 2012 — By Kendra Hughbanks

In response to rapid onset flooding in Laguna and Rizal provinces in the Philippines, Oxfam International implemented a Cash Transfer Programme (CTP) in three phases: 1) Unconditional cash transfers for individuals to provide for basic needs; 2) Conditional cash transfers for individuals resuming income generating activities (IGAs); and 3) Cash transfers for groups to pursue joint activities that contribute to community livelihoods.

This case study documents the intervention, with a focus on recommending best practices and highlighting lessons learned.
