    The evaluation/study is assessing the effects of the cash transfer modality as part of the “mixed” food assistance package consisting of both “in kind” and “cash transfers” for the general refugee population. The focus is on the food and nutrition security, income and social outcomes for both refugees and host communities and on the economic impact within the local economy. The study will also assess how scaling up of the cash transfers affects the net distribution of costs & benefits and determine the most effective and efficient mix between food and cash, given available resources.
