2018 - Cash-Based Transfers -   Infographic

This infographic shows the steady growth of  WFP cash transfers over the years. With US$1.4 billion directly transferred to 19.2 million people in 2017, cash transfers account for over 30 percent of WFP’s global assistance.  Cash transfers have become one of the main 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.
