The ripple effect of cash-based programming on WASH services in informal settlements in Lebanon

In 2020, the WASH team in UNICEF Lebanon issued a nationwide feasibility and monitoring study for the use of cash as a modality to meet certain WASH needs within informally tented settlements (ISs). Under this initiative, UNICEF implemented a pilot project to evaluate and investigate the appropriateness of scaling up cash-based programming and eventually shifting from the in-kind/voucher-based modality of support in 200,000 ISs. The grant initiative aims to meet WASH sector-specific outcomes through enabling beneficiaries with the purchasing power to freely meet their demands, thus detaching their dependency on service provision by UNICEF and implementing partners.
