Increasing Resilience to Natural Disasters with Cash-Based Interventions

Lessons Learned and Best Practices from Cash-Transfer Programming in Response to Typhoon Damrey in Vietnam

Following Vietnam’s devastating Typhoon Damrey, which flooded 15 central provinces and claimed 100 lives in November 2017, at least 400,000 people were in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Thanks to generous support from the Start Fund, CRS and Save the Children launched a cash-based response to meet urgent needs within three weeks of the disaster. This study offers lessons learned and best practices from the cash transfer programming in the typhoon response, especially as they related to increasing resilience to natural disasters with cash-based interventions.
