Cash transfers in emergencies a synthesis of World Vision’s experience and learning

This study is based on an extensive literature review and
interviews with key World Vision staff and donors between
November 2007 and May 2008. The literature review draws on
project proposals, evaluations and other project documents;
cash workshops and trainings; cash guidelines; and correspondence
with aid agency staff involved in cash transfer projects.
The emphasis is on projects, documentation and research from
2006 onwards. The paper also draws on support provided by ODI
to the Lesotho pilot project, including initial feasibility studies
and field research on gender and generational issues.
