What if cash transfer could help families heal after suffering from displacement?
Decades of armed conflict, violence and human rights violations have displaced millions of people in the Eastern region of DRC. Given this state of protracted emergency, UNICEF and its partners have developed a different context-specific approach, ARCC (Alternative Responses for Communities in Crisis).
Ms. Hannah Ring and Dr .Mitchell Morey from the American Institutes for Research, have worked on a learning paper using a quasi-experimental research design to understand the cash transfer impact on different indicators. They have given us jointly with Gabriele Erba our UNICEF’s Monitoring Specialist, an insider view of ARCC II and its humanitarian output results.
