The dialogue on cash transfer programming has progressed beyond initial debates about whether distributing cash and vouchers is a valid response modality at all, to a general acceptance of their added value in appropriate contexts. Beyond the livelihoods and food security sectors, cash transfer programming is increasingly being considered as a response to emergency shelter and WASH needs through an expanding variety of modalities and programme designs.
The objective of this study is to take stock of the recent advancements in the use of cash transfer programming in the shelter and WASH sectors and provide recommendations to encourage quality cash transfer programming at scale. The study aims to identify themes for future research, advocacy, case studies, capacity building initiatives, debates and other recommended activities.
