Cash Voucher Programme: Review of voucher assistance as a safety-net transfer modality in the Gaza Strip
This review commissioned by Oxfam GB and WFP, looks at the effect of the Cash Voucher Project of WFP / Oxfam / Ma’an (CVP) on beneficiaries in Gaza. The review studies the impact on beneficiary diets and interviews beneficiaries to obtain their opinion on cash vouchers over in-kind food aid. The review also looks at the overall economic effect of cash vouchers on the beneficiaries, their communities and local industries (in this instance the dairy processing industry). The review uses secondary data as well quantitative and qualitative findings to analyse the effectiveness of cash voucher programmes. The review concludes with recommendations on what can be done in the future to improve CVP and create a better system for voucher programmes in Gaza.
