Post-Distribution Monitoring of Cash-Based Interventions - Feb 2021
UNHCR conducted post-distribution monitoring (PDM) in February 2021 following cash-based interventions (CBI) for 2,378 refugees, asylum-seekers and returnees (930 households) in Abidjan, Bas Sassandra, Cavally, Guemon and Tonkpi, Côte d'Ivoire in 2020. The CBI aimed to address the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic
Several forms of cash intervention were carried out with different objectives. For refugees and host populations, it mainly involved covering living expenses, housing costs, school fees, one-off assistance to survivors of gender-based violence and funds for income-generating activities. Ivorian refugees returning to Côte d'Ivoire from abroad received cash as part of their return package. With the exception of living expenses, that were distributed monthly, all other cash was distrubted once for each activity for the year.
