This report is the result of an OFDA-funded evaluation of the emergency assistance provided in 2012/13.
In this project Concern provided three types of cash-based assistance – vouchers that could be exchanged for a wide variety of household goods, seeds and school fees; unconditional cash transfers; and cash for work (CFW).
The evaluation found that "Concern’s emergency response was appropriate and effective in meeting a wide range of needs facing households affected by conflict in Masisi. Given the delays caused by insecurity, Concern did an admirable job in providing the assistance within the one-year programme cycle." Issues with targeting in the project are also discussed.
