Gender Impact Analysis: Unconditional Cash Transfers in South Central Somalia

Gender Impact Analysis: Unconditional Cash Transfers in South Central Somalia

Summary

The primary objective of this study is to better understand what impact Unconditional Cash Transfers (UCTs) have on men and
women, as well as different population groups (such as IDPs, widowed and divorced women) in an emergency context. In
2012, the Cash Consortium (ACF, Adeso, DRC and Save the Children) commissioned this piece of independent research with
the aim of gaining contextual knowledge on cash and gender in South Central Somalia, particularly in the regions of Mogadishu,
Hiran and Gedo.

At the centre of this study is a belief that individuals who receive cash in disaster-affected areas (whether men or women) have
varying degrees of control over resources and decision-making. Gender is therefore but one factor that affects these levels of
control. To answer questions of impact, the study deals with two main areas. First, the study assesses the impact of cash on
gender relations within the household, considering areas such as gendered spending. Second, the study looks at the impact
of UCTs on the wider community, and considers areas such as traditional coping mechanisms, social status and levels of
conflict and violence.1
