Humanitarian funding should be based on needs
Despite high level donor commitments to the humanitarian principles, global humanitarian funding continues to favour politically strategic countries over neglected or protracted crises. A new report by the Norwegian Refugee Council and Humanitarian Policy Group at the Overseas Development Institute looks beyond the rhetoric and makes concrete recommendations to make humanitarian funding more principled and effective.
Malnutrition is caused by inadequate dietary intake and disease, which in turn are caused by food insecurity, inadequate care and a poor health environment. In theory, cash transfers in emergency and transitional settings could address most if not all causes of malnutrition. However, attributing changes in nutritional status to interventions, including those using cash transfers, is extremely difficult.
