Literature Review on the Use of Cash in Shelter
The objective of this study is to better prepare the Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) to respond to the needs of the field, providing expertise and technical support remotely and on mission. This literature review has taken stock of what has been done so far on cash for shelter, housing finance, and has looked into existing market assessment tools.
The purpose of this study is to develop a greater understanding of cash based programming for shelter, and cash and shelter coordination for disaster and conflict situations. This will reinforce decision making on the potential use of cash and provide guidance on adequate implementation tools for cash programmes.
