Les Transferts d’Argent par Téléphonie Mobile et par IMF pour les Réfugiés Urbains à Niamey (Niger)

Cette étude a comparé l'efficacité des transferts d’argent par téléphonie mobile et les transferts de cash par l’Institution de Micro-Finance aux réfugiés urbains à Niamey.

L'étude a révélé que le mécanisme de transfert d’argent par téléphonie mobile serait plus rentable que le mécanisme de l'IMF, après que les coûts initiaux d’installation liés à la technologie soient amortis. L'utilisation de points de retrait de proximité peut réduire les coûts de transport et d’opportunité pour les bénéficiaires.

The impact of cash and food transfers - Evidence from a randomized intervention in Niger

There is little rigorous evidence on the comparative impacts of cash and food transfers on food security and food-related outcomes. We assess the relative impacts of receiving cash versus food transfers using a randomized design. Drawing on data collected in eastern Niger, we find that households randomized to receive a food basket experienced larger, positive impacts on measures of food consumption and diet quality than those receiving the cash transfer. Receiving food also reduced the use of a number of coping strategies.

Abused and Expelled: Ill-treatment of Sub-Saharan African Migrants in Morocco

Moroccan security forces commonly beat, otherwise abuse, and sometimes steal from sub-Saharan migrants in the northeastern part of the country, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. These abuses persist despite some improvements in the treatment of migrants since the government announced a new migration and asylum policy in September 2013. Since that time, the practice of summarily expelling migrants at the border with Algeria appears to have stopped.

Resilience: Why does it matter to the humanitarian community? Sahel as a case study

The humanitarian caseload continues to remain large in the Sahel due to a combination of both acute and chronic factors such as climate change, conflict and population growth. Some 16 million people across the region are conservatively projected to be at risk for 2014.1 These numbers are all the more concerning given the absence, for a second year running, of extreme weather events. Fortunately, humanitarian agencies are responding increasingly successfully to the caseload. Donors too continue to respond generously to the financing needs.

Confronting Crisis: Transforming lives through improved resilience

Concern Worldwide’s learning from the Sahel and the Horn of Africa September 2013

Introduction

This paper suggests that building community resilience to food and nutrition crises is key to promoting a sustainable development agenda in drought prone regions. It argues that, in order to reverse trends of chronic poverty and malnutrition, radical change is needed in domestic and donor policy. This includes fully integrating disaster preparedness, risk reduction and resilience strategies within development policies.
