Post-Distribution Monitoring of Cash-Based Interventions 2021-2022
Statistical Info. & Monitoring Prog. [hh/simpoc]
UNHCR uses Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) as a mechanism to collect refugees’ feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization and effectiveness of the assistance items they receive. The underlying principle behind the process is linked to accountability, as well as a commitment to improve the quality and relevance of support provided, and related services. UNHCR increasingly uses cash based interventions (CBIs) as a preferred modality for delivering assistance, offering greater dignity and choice to Persons of Concern (PoCs) in line with UNHCR’s core protection mandate. In order to ensure that the cash assistance provided meets the intended objectives and that desired outcomes are achieved, UNHCR conducts regular post-distribution and outcome monitoring with a sample of refugee recipients residing across the country. This study monitors the following type of Cash Assitance: Basic Needs (MPCA), Education, Energy, cash for persons with specific needs, cash for protection and covid-19, rent, shelter repair, voluntary return and winterization.
