1. Introduction

The use of cash-based interventions (CBI) has seen a considerable expansion within humanitarian responses at large, as well as CARE’s work in emergencies.  CBI is a tool that can be used to deliver outcomes within different sectors, including Food and Nutrition Security, agricultural livelihoods, WASH, Shelter and SRH. CBI can also take the form of multi-purpose cash assistance, which can produce outcomes across different sectors.
