ACTED in partnership with SADO implemented conditional and unconditional cash transfer projects through the funding of ECHO and OFDA in Elwak, Bardhere and Kismayo districts with a target population of 4170 household beneficiaries. The objective of the monitoring was to provide an independent and objective assessment of the project in regards to quality of the activities being implemented. The third party monitoring was to determine: (1)Fair targeting in meeting the established criteria; (2)Delivery of cash transfers as planned in terms of timing, conditions and amount and (3)Security conditions for beneficiaries (taxation issues in particular).

This was complemented by qualitative methods comprising of 4 focus group discussions, 33 key informant interviews and researcher’s observations.
