Highlights

The feasibility analysis on the delivery of cash assistance for children in emergencies in Viet Nam was commissioned by UNICEF Viet Nam and FAO Viet Nam in close collaboration with the Social Protection Department, Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA). The analysis was funded by the European Union and conducted as part of the ECHO-supported joint UN project in ASEAN “Developing Options for Risk-Informed and Shock-Responsive Social Protection”, phase II, which aims to promote the linkages between shock-responsive social protection and early actions.  
 
The purpose of this study was to explore options for cash transfer delivery mechanisms to respond to intensifying and recurrent natural disasters and to identify the operational needs to ensure timely and effective delivery of cash assistance to children. The study's findings will contribute to building a shock-responsive 'flex' within the regular social assistance system in the country.
