Cash+ How to Maximize the Impact of Cash Transfers

Cash+ How to Maximize the Impact of Cash Transfers
Feb 2018

This poster was developed for the International Conference on Social Protection in Contexts of Fragility and Forced Displacement, organized with the EU, UNICEF, UNHCR and WFP. http://sp-fragility-displacement.onetec.eu/index.asp?type= The objective was to showcase FAO's Cash+ approach which consists in “combining cash transfers with productive assets, activities, inputs, and/or technical training and extension services” to boost the livelihoods and productive capacities of poor and vulnerable households. These interventions can strengthen the resilience of vulnerable households’ livelihoods and increase food production while enhancing the economic impact of social protection and help families meet their immediate food requirements. CASH+ is a tool that can be used for quick impact humanitarian response interventions, recovery and resilience programming as well as part of longer term social protection programmes. Main highlights includes experiences from Lesotho and Somalia.
