Zimbabwe Emergency Cash Transfer (ZECT) Pilot Programme: Monitoring Consolidated Report, November 2009 to March 2010

April 2010 — By Elena Ruiz Román

Concern Worldwide Zimbabwe together with WFP implemented the Zimbabwe Emergency Cash Transfer (ZECT) Pilot Programme in three districts of Zimbabwe as part of the Vulnerable Feeding Group intervention for the food shortages of 2009/2010.

In spite of its limited duration (5 months), the ZECT was highly innovative and generated a range of positive effects. Drawing from extensive monitoring qualitative and quantitative fieldwork conducted during the 5 months the programme lasted, this report reviews the effects of the programme on households, communities and markets, and draws lessons learned for Concern Worldwide and for other organizations interested in emergency cash transfers in Zimbabwe and beyond.
