Real-time Learning on Cash-Preparedness within the 2022 Horn of Africa Drought Response

Anticipated end date: 30 June 2022

Contact: Sapenzie Ojiambo


The study aims to elucidate what it takes to be effectively prepared for drought response using cash and voucher modalities and facilitate the incorporation of lessons from previous drought crises into the current response. The study is to be undertaken in a way that feeds into the ongoing drought response so that the process and findings enrich CVA programming within the current response and increase understanding of what is, and what isn’t possible, in terms of lead time from when funding is received to when it reaches the intended recipient.

The study’s main objective is to demystify what is feasible in terms of lead-times for scaling-up cash responses to slow onset disasters and outline what it would take for organizations to be effectively prepared to achieve them.
