27 June 2018: Joint statement by 26 international NGOs in Uganda on the need for urgent action to address gaps in funding for the refugee response.
1.1 Project Background
World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) have made a strategic decision to transition from material aid support to refugees to cash based transfers. This is driven by the increasing cost of delivering food and material aid. Close to US$12,000,000 is spent monthly on food distribution. The decision is supported by research that shows that beneficiaries make smart spending decisions that mitigate against food insecurity.
This paper will present evidence on how cash transfers empowers conflict affected populations. The evidence is based on two projects implemented by DCA in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Furthermore, the paper present evidence on how the two projects successfully linked cash and protection. 14, 520 beneficiaries (80% females) including 26 vendors benefited from the projects.
