Mongolia: Commodity Vouchers to Support Livestock Herder Disaster Preparedness
At Action Against Hunger, we have a history of pioneering the application of cutting-edge tools and techniques to old, persistent problems in aid and development. In that tradition, we are a leading partner of the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP). The CaLP “aims to improve the quality of emergency cash transfer and voucher programming across the humanitarian sector.” In emergencies, distributing some form of cash or vouchers can be much more effective than the classic donations of food, soap, and other standardized sets of equipment that may not be useful to every affected family. Provided local shops are functioning, cash gives the flexibility to buy what’s needed, while keeping shop owners involved in the local economy.
