Based on the experience of delivering the first large-scale humanitarian cash programme in Zimbabwe, this briefing paper argues that even during a liquidity crisis, cash transfer programming can still be a feasible option, giving people greater freedom and dignity of choice during times of crisis. The paper concludes that cash transfers are a cost-effective and cost-efficient modality for meeting community needs, and makes policy recommendations for future cash transfer programming.
