The Cash Atlas was launched in July 2013 by the Cash Learning Partnership as a mapping tool to provide information on cash transfer programmes world-wide. Today, the cash atlas includes 713 projects.
The data shows that the majority of projects (80%) implemented in 2014 included food security and livelihoods objectives, while roughly 20% involved WASH or shelter interventions. Moreover, unconditional grants is the most common modality being implemented in 41% of all projects in 2014, followed by vouchers (30%) and cash-for-work (27%). The most substantial shift is the growing use of electronic transfers, used for 34% of all projects against 26% the previous year.
The cash atlas has changed some of its modalities to facilitate and expand data entry.
