    UNHCR increasingly uses Cash-Based Interventions (CBIs) as a preferred modality for delivering assistance, offering greater dignity and choice to forcibly displaced and stateless persons in line with UNHCR's core protection mandate. To ensure the cash assistance provided meets the intended programme objectives and that desired outcomes are achieved, UNHCR conducts regular post-distribution and outcome monitoring. Post-Distribution Monitoring (PDM) is a mechanism to collect feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of assistance. The underlying principle behind the process is linked to accountability, as well as a commitment to improve the quality and relevance of support provided, and related services. This CBI PDM took place in Anderambouane in the Ménaka region of Mali in April 2020. It includes 251 returnee and host community households out of 1,161 who received cash from UNHCR. Most returnees were refugees returning from Chinagodrare (Niger), with a small portion returning from internal displacement within the Ménaka region. The objective of the cash intervention was to support shelter, non-food items and basic needs. Each household received 150,000 FCFA.

    This dataset contains the results of a household survey to evaluate the impact of an unconditional cash transfer on child labour and other child and household outcomes amongst cocoa farmers in Ghana. Baseline (2019) and follow-up (2021) data was collected from a sample of 644 cocoa growing households in Ahafo and Eastern regions. All recipient households were members of certified cooperative. The study was set up as a Randomized Control Trial - a randomly selected sub-set of these farmers received 6 months of unconditional cash payments between the baseline and follow-up survey.

    Cash-based Interventions (CBIs) are a dignified form of assistance, giving recipients the ability to immediately prioritise and address their needs for food, shelter/accommodation, and other necessities. CBIs also directly complement community protection measures and support the local economy and can contribute to peaceful coexistence within and across communities. UNHCR Afghanistan has used cash-based interventions for several years for a wide range of purposes, including voluntary repatriation, basic needs, community-based protection, and livelihoods among others. UNHCR seeks to improve cash programming by regularly and systematically collecting information through post-distribution monitoring (PDM) on several aspects related to UNHCR’s CBIs including efficiency of cash delivery, access to markets, use of cash, unmet needs and coping strategies. Findings are expected to help UNHCR to improve the way the CBIs are designed and delivered. This PDM covers two CBI programmes delivered by UNHCR in in the Eastern Region of Afghanistan in 2020, cash for protection and cash for shelter. Cash for protection was designed to support households with specific protection profiles to cope with the socio-economic consequences of COVID-19 and avoid harmful coping strategies. Cash for shelter was designed to support vulnerable households with conditional cash grants to construct safe and dignified shelter. While the programmes were carried out countrywide, supporting 13,792 households with cash for protection and 506 with cash for shelter, the Eastern Region supported the largest number of CBI recipients. As such, this region was prioritized for the PDM data collection which took place in Kunar, Laghman, Nangarhar, and Nuristan provinces.

    UNHCR conducts post-distribution monitoring (PDM) on a regular basis for assistance activities in order to deepen its understanding of the impact these activities have on the persons the organization assists and provides protection to. In Ukraine, UNHCR provides individual protection assistance in the following regions: Kyiv, Odesa, Zakarpattya (also covers Lviv) and Kharkiv regions. The UNHCR Cash-Based Interventions (CBI) support only vulnerable refugees and asylum-seekers. The type of assistance vary depending on the needs and vulnerability of persons of concern. the following types of CBI assistance that were provided to refugees and asylum-seekers by UNHCR and its Partners in Ukraine in 2020: 1. Supplementary assistance and newcomers assistance - Modality: voucher (Metro cards, a supermarket chain that partners with UNHCR) - Available only in Kyiv and Odesa - Description: Distribution of vouchers (Metro cards) for food and non-food items to refugees and asylum-seekers who meet established vulnerability criteria (newcomers, PoCs in need of supplementary food or hygiene due to medical condition). In 2020, 121 families residing in Kyiv and Odesa received voucher assistance at least once. In 2020 UNHCR used Metro Cash&Carry (big supermarket chain) cards in the value of 500 UAH. However, due to COVID-19 quarantine restrictions imposed by the government of Ukraine, UNHCR Ukraine has gradually shifted to provision of these types of assistance through other modalities. This PDM focused only on the cases processed through vouchers. MSA (Monthly Subsistence Allowance) Modality: cash. OTC (over the counter) Available in Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv Description: MSA (monthly subsistence allowance) aims to support the most vulnerable persons of concern. It is given based on the strict vulnerability criteria and cases are reviewed every four months at the MSA committee meetings, composed of partner social counselors, SMS and UNHCR. In 2020, 105 vulnerable families were covered by this type of support. The amount of MSA is calculated based on the family size. It is in line with the recommendations of the Cash Working Group on assistance provision at 60% of subsistence level (3 774.62 UAH as of February 2020), which corresponds to MSA amount. Assistance per single person provided by UNHCR amounted to 2 400 UAH per month, proportionally increased depending on the number of household members.

In 2020, through its partners Adonis Musati Project, Future Families, Refugee Social Services and Hand in Hand Development, UNHCR Southern African Multi-Country Office (SAMCO) provided multi-purpose cash (including for food, accommodation, household and hygiene items) to the most vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa for a limited period of time (1 - 3 months) per individual, however, assistance could be extended after a re-assessment. The aim of the assistance was to focus essentially on life-saving and life-sustaining measures to vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers' needs. The CBI PDM was implemented by the partners after the intervention in their area was complete.
