Haarmann, C. and Haarmann, D. 2015. Relief through cash: Impact assessment of the emergency cash grant in Namibia


Description:

Relief through cash: Impact assessment of the emergency cash grant in Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

During the 2012/2013 summer months, the precipitation deficitsrnvaried between 20% and 90%, which resulted in one of the worst recorded droughts in Namibia. According to government 36% of the population (755,000 people) became food insecure during the period between March 2013 and March 2014. Therefore the President declared a state of emergency, and asked for a joint relief effort from the local and international community. Modelled on the Basic Income Grant Pilot in Otjivero, the three Lutheran Churches in Namibia implemented a joint emergency cashgrant programme. The cash grant was universally paid in four communities in four regions reaching 6,000 people. The cash grant was calculated on a per capita basis and similar to the BIG only people who already received a universal old age pension or other government grants were excluded. Furthermore, individuals who earned a taxablernincome above N$ 50,000 per annum were excluded. However, theirrnhousehold members still qualified for their cash grant.rnThis impact study analysis data from two of the four communities,rnwhere a baseline and impact household survey and case studies werernconducted. The study further draws secondary source like government data and reports.
