This synthesis report examines the effectiveness of humanitarian cash transfers in Ukraine, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Mozambique and Nepal. These case studies are building on the work of the High Level Panel on Humanitarian Cash Transfers. The Panel concluded that cash transfers are not used enough in humanitarian responses and not used in ways that take advantage of their transformative potential. The case studies found impressive developments.
