Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of humanitarian cash assistance

Anticipated end date: 30 September 2021

Contact: Elizabeth Tromans

While the case for cash for immediate food needs is well established, its potential to simultaneously support longer-term outcomes has not yet been harnessed. IRC is conducting a small-scale pilot in Yemen to test 6 months of monthly transfers against 2 months of assistance, a lumpsum transfer equivalent to 3 months, and a final one-month transfer, testing the possibility of longer-term impact.
