2018 - Cash-Based Transfers -   Infographic

This infographic shows the steady growth of  WFP cash-based transfers over the years. With 1.3 billion US$ directly transferred to millions of people in 2017, they now account for over 30 percent of WFP’s global assistance.  Cash-based transfers have become one of the essential tools WFP employs to accelerate progress towards SDG 2, empowering people with the means and freedom to meet their essential needs – of which food and nutrition are core - supporting local economies with the purchase of local food, and strengthening the national systems they are channelled through.
