The term “cash transfer programming” (abbreviated “CTP”) refers to any of the cash transfer systems used to administer services, including cash-for-work and vouchers. Although cash transfer is a tool for achieving program goals rather than a goal in and of itself, the term “cash transfer programming” has become commonly used to describe any use of these mechanisms in field programs. It encompasses all programs in which beneficiaries are given direct cash (or vouchers for products or services). The strategy encourages market recovery by leveraging linkages, capabilities, incentives, and relationships. CTP is a delivery system for assistance; it is not a field or program in and of itself. CTPs, such as large-scale, state-sponsored cash transfer schemes, can be planned with long-term development goals.

All forms of cash transfers aim to provide prompt and cost-effective assistance to crisis-affected communities while also benefiting the local economy. Many people benefit from Cash Transfer programs, including responsibility for their own recovery (they know best/people at the center); flexibility and choice; better access to culturally appropriate, local, fresh products; and more. Possibilities for beneficiaries’ financial inclusion; A single transfer can serve many purposes (multi-purpose), and various distribution mechanisms can be hidden.

Modern-day organizations and governments have embraced Cash transfer programming (CTP) to address the needs of communities during disasters and early development periods. CTP has become popular because it gives dignity back to people and is seen as an appropriate emergency response to provide for the immediate needs of food and non-food items. This approach is also used to support the recovery of livelihoods after disasters and put communities back on the path to development.

There are various forms of CTP, and many staff in these organizations and local governments have been using these approaches without good justification, failing to achieve the optimum benefits that CTP provides. Seasoned’ Cash Transfer Programming for development actors training aims to provide working knowledge in the concept and practice of cash transfers in development and humanitarian domains.
