Cash transfer programmes in Afghanistan: Taking Stock of Recent and On-Going Research

In a challenging Afghan environment, Cash Transfer Programmes (CTPs) have proven to be an efficient, safe, and flexible assistance tool that has delivered all or part of a response: i) in emergency or development situations; ii) across a large spectrum of activities (livelihoods, WASH, food security), and iii) in diverse geographic locations (urban and rural communities). To fuel the on-going debate, we listed key findings and lessons learned from Samuel Hall’s most recent publications.

Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Hirat Province, September 2014

Context: The relative security of the province together with the significant livelihood, economic and commercial opportunities created by trade with Iran have attracted people fleeing conflict, natural disaster and poverty over the last 20 years: the province hosts today one of the largest IDP populations in the country. Hirat city is the base for a significant humanitarian, development and diplomatic presence and has one of the better resourced disaster response mechanisms in the Western Region. Recent security incidents have affected the movement of NGOs to rural areas.

Afghanistan: Humanitarian Overview - Badghis Province, September 2014

Context: The province ranks third in the CHAP 2014 with comparatively negative indicators across all sectors. Badghis is vulnerable to natural disasters with predictable and recurrent natural hazards (flooding and drought) having localised but significant impact, particularly in rain-fed areas. The province is also affected by conflict, sharing a border with the highly contested province of Faryab but without experiencing its high rate of displacement. There is a high degree of dependence on the humanitarian community to prepare and respond to emergencies.
