A case study of Ethiopia’s Productive Safety Net Programme and Kenya’s Hunger Safety Net Programme
This thematic report has been undertaken as part of a 2013 research study entitled, Is Cash Transfer Programming ‘Fit for the Future’? The research was commissioned by the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) and undertaken by the Humanitarian Futures Programme (HFP), King’s College London. The overall project intends to understand how changes in the broader global and humanitarian landscape may evolve in the future (up to 2025), and how these changes might shape cash transfer programming (CTP).
The famine in East Africa is the perfect testing ground for the UK government’s recent commitment to reform its humanitarian response by anticipating and preparing more strategically for new and more frequent types of future hazards of greater dimensions and dynamics.
The challenge comes from the Director of the Humanitarian Futures Programme (HFP) at King’s College, London.
He says the tragedy unfolding in the Horn of Africa today must be the impetus for a new approach to dealing with humanitarian crises.
