Cash Based Programming in Somalia

This interactive datavisualization shows the cash-based assistance reported by humanitarian agencies in Somalia. Cash-based assistance refers to all programs where cash (or vouchers for goods or services) is directly provided to beneficiaries. In the context of humanitarian assistance, the term is used to refer to the provision of cash transfers or vouchers given to individuals, household or community recipients. The data used in the datavisualization is collected monthly by the sectoral clusters from operational partners on ongoing activities, and is compiled by UNOCHA. While OCHA makes every effort to ensure all cash based actors are represented there may be other cash activities ongoing not captured in this data.

People assisted

People assisted is the sum of people receiving cash-based assistance across all sectors, in the selected month. It sums the reported number of recipients from all clusters, and includes both cash and vouchers. If a person receives cash-based assistance from more than one sector (for instance, a water voucher and a multi-purpose cash grant), that person will be counted more than once. Hence, there is some potential for double-counting, although this is estimated to be relatively limited.

Value transferred

Value transferred is the sum of the USD value of the cash-based assistance transferred to people in the selected month. It is calculated by multiplying the value transferred to each household multiplied by all assisted households, and summed across agencies and locations.
