Transcript of " Cash and Voucher transfers in food assistance Programs"

  1. 1. CASH-for-CHANGE CASH and VOUCHER TRANSFERS in FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
  2. 2. Background • Delivering “Hunger Solutions” and reduce food insecurity.CASH-for-CHANGE • Cash and voucher transfers for social protection, to increase resilience but also to meet relief needs. • Ability to shift among cash, food and vouchers allows WFP to tailor the response maintaining it relevant over the intervention’s lifetime. • Broader toolbox has the potential to increase the intervention’s effectiveness.
  3. 3. oPt: e-vouchers WFP & Ministry Social Affairs 1. Protect the livelihoods and enhance dietary diversity of urban foodCASH-for-CHANGE insecure households; 2. Enable beneficiaries to purchase local products (cheese, eggs, etc.) directly from grocery shops; 3. Invest in local communities, stimulate economic activity and employment at the micro level.
  4. 4. oPt: e-vouchers Project Outcomes Significant and sustained improvement ofCASH-for-CHANGE household dietary diversity compared to baseline data and to households receiving in- kind food assistance. 40% of participating shops showed more than 60% increase in sales due to the vouchers and to the spill-over effects on the shops’ businesses. Employment increased from an average of 0.9 to 2.4 employees per shop, which, corresponds on average to 35 people hired as a result of the voucher project. Beneficiaries perceived the voucher programme as improving their choice, flexibility and dignity.
  5. 5. Burkina Faso: vouchers WFP & Ministry Social Affairs 1. Protect the livelihoods of the poorest affected by substantial purchasingCASH-for-CHANGE power erosion and income loss. 2. Enable beneficiaries to purchase local products (cereals, pulses, soap, etc.) directly from grocery shops largely affected by the reduced purchasing power.
  6. 6. Burkina Faso: vouchers Project Outcomes Poverty persisted but WFPCASH-for-CHANGE assistance mitigated the impoverishment trend among the beneficiaries. Prevalence of severe food insecurity dropped from 80 to 65 percent among assisted households. For the majority of beneficiaries increased food intake (quantity and quality).
