WFP Chad piloted SCOPE cards for cash-based food assistance in the Lake Chad region for 2,650 internally displaced persons living in Kaya. The SCOPE card is a brand new tool using biometric information: the recipient’s identity is verified through a fingerprint scanner and a financial service provider cashes out the entitlements checking the information on the SCOPE card with a card reader/point of sale device. It enables accurate delivery of assistance in a context where the populations are very mobile. This modality is being scaled up.
