Pakistan Emergency Food Security Alliance: Lessons Learned

2011 — By PEFSA

In response to the unprecedented scale of flooding that affected Pakistan in July 2010, six INGOs – Save the Children, Oxfam GB, IRC, CARE, ACTED and Action Against Hunger / ACF International – formed the Pakistan Emergency Food Security Alliance (PEFSA).

Working together in order to maximise the effectiveness, all of these INGOs used cash-based responses in this large-scale emergency. PEFSA has now just released a study documenting the challenges, successes and lessons learned from the response in four key areas: targeting, different cash modalities, the joint market assessment, and working in an alliance. The study also highlights key constraints such as caps on donor funding for unconditional cash grants.
