Over the past decade, there has been a growing consensus in the humanitarian community that cash, as compared to in-kind aid, is the best form of assistance to provide during an emergency. For families that have been displaced by a crisis or natural disaster, cash offers aid recipients more flexibility and the opportunity to prioritize their most urgent needs. With broad consensus that cash assistance can offer advantages over in-kind humanitarian aid, the debate now focuses on how best to deliver that cash.
This report consolidates the findings of a comparative evaluation commissioned by UNDP to assess results and identify good practices and lessons learned in supporting mobile courts through UNDP rule of law programmes in post-conflict settings.

Armed conflict has devastated large swathes of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 1997. Civilians in many parts of the eastern provinces – men, women, boys and girls – still face constant threats of forced displacement, sexual violence, abduction, and extortion, not only from militia groups, but in many cases from those who are mandated to protect them. Deep-seated attitudes and beliefs continue to perpetuate discrimination and violence against women.
Overview and background

In this regard, the UN has led by example, addressing HIV as an integral component of its own peacekeeping missions in diverse settings.
