Doing Cash Differently

Jun 9, 2014 | by Overseas Development Institute

This report summarizes 12 recommendations for how to make cash central to future emergencies and describes why giving aid directly in the form of cash is a highly effective way to reduce suffering and stretch humanitarian aid budgets.
The report also explains the position that moving to a coordinated system of cash transfers is also an opportunity for broader reform of the humanitarian system, so that aid providers of the future can work in a more complementary way to maximise
their impact.
