14. Cash distributions

Cash and voucher distribution programmes are increasingly being used as alternative to the direct distribution of commodities and non-food relief items. CARE has recently developed detailed guidelines for cash and voucher distribution which can be used in this respect. (We need to annex the cash and voucher guidelines shared by Justus recently)

For guidelines on implementing cash transfers, see Annex 19.22 Cash transfer programming in emergencies (Oxfam).
