The primary purpose of this evaluation was to assess the impact of the Consortium Cash Transfer response to food insecurity in Malawi.
The cash transfer (CT) response was highly appropriate to beneficiaries' needs and preferences. In particular, the CT Program aligned with the strong beneficiary preference for cash over in-kind aid. Future responses to transitory food shortages in Malawi should consider the option of cash-based programming where market conditions are identified as capable of supporting this approach.
