In response to the drought and famine in the Horn of Africa in 2011, cash transfer programming (CTP) has been used extensively as a modality to meet humanitarian needs. Partly because the conditions permitted it (functioning markets, cash economies and delivery mechanisms), and partly because delivering in-kind assistance was almost impossible in some severely affected and insecure areas (particularly South Central Somalia), CTP was an appropriate response. This is the first disaster in which aid agencies have implemented cash transfers on such a huge scale.

This report is a synthesis from lessons of government experiences of scale up of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). It is based on nine country case studies (Ethiopia, Pakistan, Niger, Somalia, Kenya, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Malawi, Mozambique), considerations around scale-up from India, and the proceedings of an international conference in Addis Ababa, 14-17 November, 2011 at which the case studies and India experiences were presented and discussed.

1. The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) appeal for East Africa was launched through the UK media on 8 July 2011 and has raised GBP 75 million to date. This remarkably generous public response should be seen in perspective: it represents around 4% of overall international funding for the crisis response in the region; and particularly for the larger DEC member agencies, it represents a relatively small proportion of their funding for the crisis response (around 10% for some).
