    Hi, all:

    In partnership with RedR, I am currently involved with supporting the CaLP to develop their Module 2 training material for technical humanitarian practitioners and strategic decision makers.

    In the training we are going to offer a range of case studies. The crises to be looked are: South Sudan, Syria and the Philippines. We wanted to include a fourth, which would be either Ukraine or Greece. The objective is to rely on “real life” data, situation analysis, market assessments, project documents, etc.

    I was therefore wondering if you would have documentation you would be keen to share related to any of those contexts. You would of course be adequately acknowledged.

    Thanks a lot in advance,



    Dear Adela,

    This would be quite useful. The proposed case studies would be ideal for cash programming in fragile contexts where access is limited, rapid onset disasters and also for protracted displacements.

    However, it would also be useful to consider a case study featuring a slow onset disaster such as the response to drought and or El-Niño? – Scale up of cash in this contexts linking to existing SP, coordination, use of private sector etc …

    Sorry for not answering to your questions as I don’t have specify direct implementation overview.

    All the best and kind regards,

    Hi Adela,

    For Ukraine case study, you should look at some of the work of the Shelter Cluster in Ukraine, they have done some very interesting market assessments for the rental market, as well as other interesting research and and developed contextual tools for shelter actors using cash as a modality.

    I recommend you to contact directly the cluster coordinators:

    All the best,




    Dear Adela and all,

    For a slow-on set response you might like to refer to Hunger Safety Net Programme, Northern Kenya http://www.hsnp.or.ke

    HSNP has pre-registered most HHs in four counties, who now have active bank accounts, undergoing KYC checks using a national ID card. Biometric finger prints are included so that all transactions require two-factor secure identification. Withdrawal from local traders, using a satellite modem, dish and solar panel is in real-time.
    Payment coverage is scaled up immediately on receipt of remote-sensed drought data crossing GoK-defined drought status thresholds. Vegetation Condition Index (VCI) data is a good leading indicator of terms of trade in areas dominated by pastoral livelihoods activity. Early payments ensure recipients are able to make purchases while commodity prices are still low.

    In the past year, payments were made on six occasions. Five of these were for drought and one was a payment to approx. 208,000 HHs made in anticipation of forecast El Nino-related flooding.

    Happy to provide more information. Best wishes,

    Team Leader – HSNP – Kenya
