Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Cash-Based Food Assistance Projects

A Case Study and Discussion Paper of Findings in Niger

Despite recent and expanding literature on cost effectiveness and value for money, there is little by way of guidance for the implementation of cost-effectiveness analysis in humanitarian and development programming. This report distills findings from the literature on ex post cost-effectiveness analysis, and applies those findings to an analysis of Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) cash and voucher transfer projects focused on increasing food security in Niger. This analysis contributes to upcoming CRS guidance for projects on cost-efficient and -effective, cash-based programs.
