Study of cash-based approaches in urban environments
The Groupe URD Observatory has been asked by the British Red Cross to conduct a study of lessons learned in livelihoods and economic recovery programmes in urban environments. Cash transfer programmes were implemented on a large scale in the area affected by the earthquake of 12 January 2010. The implementation of these programmes in urban environments raises a certain number of questions in terms of the appropriateness of evaluation tools, targeting and operational methods. The current study aims to analyse the specific characteristics of this type of operation in urban environments and its principal challenges and opportunities. The study will last around 1 month, beginning in July 2013.
