Scaling up cash-based interventions, January - December 2021
In line with the 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan and the preferences expressed by affected people, humanitarian actors have continued to scale up cash-based interventions (CBI) in the Central African Republic. Some 1.6 million people have been reached with CBI in 2021, twice as many as in 2020. Most programmes aim at tackling growing food insecurity and mitigating the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19. Joint analysis (people's preferences, markets and protection risks), the use of common tools (minimum expenditure basket) and enhanced coordination, including through the UN Common Cash System (UNCCS) partnership, ensured the quality of CBI programming.
