A New Operating Model for Cash Transfer Programs

The Air-Bel center is thrilled to share a report on the results of a pilot of a new approach to cash transfers in Pakistan that aims to improve the speed and reduce the cost of getting cash to people in emergencies. This approach integrates the use of government social-safety net data on vulnerable families in Pakistan to identify beneficiaries rapidly, and links it with a mobile money platform to deliver cash more quickly. This project was run using Segovia software, which links datasets and mobile money platforms, and enables organizations smoothly to manage digital programs.

The results from the targeting pilots indicate that using a pre-positioned data from social-safety net systems to identify beneficiaries could be more cost and time efficient than current practice. Based on these results, IRC will continue to refine this approach in a larger test pilot later this summer.
