Implementing cash-based interventions: A guideline for aid workers

A growing body of experience and literature shows an interest in alternatives to in-kind distributions, where people are given cash or vouchers instead, which they use to acquire the items they need. In this manual, these are broadly called "cash-based interventions". ACF has been implementing food security projects for more than 25 years and have included some cash-based interventions but these have been limited in number relative to other food security interventions. The purpose of this module is to provide ACF with a practical guide for implementing cash-based interventions.
