In recent years, the use of cash transfer programming (CTP) in humanitarian assistance has grown significantly.
The Facilitator’s Guide for the basic-needs based Response Options Analysis and Planning (ROAP) is a step-by-step guide comprising tools and templates to carry out a multi-sectoral response analysis and planning of response options, in a sudden-onset or chronic crisis.
The ROAP is intended as a structured decision-making process, which brings together and draws from the information generated by the Basic Needs Analysis (BNA) (as well as other needs assessments) and the analysis operational environment (see The ROAP within the Humanitarian Programme Cycle).
The Basic Needs Analysis (BNA) is a multi-sector needs analysis approach that can be applied in both sudden onset and protracted emergencies. The methodology comprises the Guidance (this document) presenting the conceptual BNA framework and related processes, and a Toolbox, which includes tools, templates, training materials, and examples drawn from its first pilot, in Borno State(Nigeria).
In the wake of the 2014-2016 Ebola crisis, USAID/Food for Peace (USAID/FFP) decided to address the resulting food insecurity in Liberia and Sierra Leone via cash-transfer programming (CTP) rather than in-kind food aid. Information available at the time showed that markets were recovering as quarantines and other movement restrictions were lifted, making cash a viable option.
With the aim of helping the humanitarian sector to improve beneficiary’s data protection, CaLP is now launching in partnership with the UNHCR the course “E – transfer and operationalizing beneficiary data protection”. The purpose of this course is to assist humanitarian practitioners to take the necessary steps to operationalize the protection of beneficiary data in programmes using electronic transfers, or e-transfers.
