Cash Based Interventions (CBI)

Cash continues to gain prevalence as a modality for humanitarian agencies to help people meet multiple and diverse needs in the wake of a crisis. It provides people with the dignity of choice and is often significantly more cost‐efficient than the delivery of in‐kind aid. Providing refugees with cash enables them to fulfill their needs in a dignified manner and contributes to the local economy. IOM uses cash-based interventions to provide assistance and services to the most vulnerable refugees as well as the host community. The Cash assistance helps the peoples meet basic needs and winterization items.
