The escalation of violence in Gaza and Israel is leaving people in Gaza in urgent need of humanitarian support. Please donate now.


These ‘E-transfers in Emergencies: Implementation support guidelines’ are intended for the field practitioners of aid agencies engaged in humanitarian responses incorporating cash transfers to be delivered through digital payment systems, as well as their extended teams in management and programme support functions.

These guidelines assume prior knowledge of cash transfer programming and focus exclusively on implementing  e-transfers; they do not elaborate on decisions relating to whether or not cash is a viable programme option. Therefore, the programme lifecycle begins with assessing which e-transfer option is best suited to deliver a given cash-based intervention.

Designed as guidance sheets, these guidelines can be used as reference documents to enable practitioners to easily access their sections of interest or relevance, with some elements also cross-referenced throughout the documents.
