This report examines a Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supported labourintensive cash for work and voucher for work project which was implemented in the framework of GIZ’s Food and Nutrition Security and Conflict Management Project (FNS) in Karamoja. The FNS project was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The study relates GIZ’s experience in cash and vouchers for work to key issues emerging from the wider literature on cash and voucher-based responses.
