Assessment of the Emergency Top-up Cash Transfer Programme for Vulnerable Groups in Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.71 MB | Download   
This independent assessment examines the delivery and effectiveness of the emergency top-
up cash transfer programme (ETCTP) delivered by the Government of Nepal in cooperation
with UNICEF.The programme was designed to reduce the impacts of the April 2015 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks on Nepal’s most vulnerable populations. A cash benefit of NRs. 3,000 (US$30) was provided to the beneficiaries of existing government social assistance programmes in the 19 most earthquake-affected districts as a top-up to the regular payments.Beneficiaries included: (1) Senior citizens aged 70 years and above or 60 years and above if Dalit; (2) Widows, and single women aged 60 years and above; (3) People with disabilities; (4) Dalit children under 5 years of age; and (5) Highly marginalized indigenous ethnic groups. The ETCTP aimed to meet immediate household expenditure needs and to increase household resilience by reducing the use of negative coping mechanisms and behaviours in an extremely challenging post-earthquake situation.
