Do I need to change my assessments in order to give cash?

Since most assessment approaches and tools are not cash-sensitive, if you haven’t integrated cash-specific information into them during preparedness, it is likely that you will need to do this while planning and preparing for assessment. When looking for secondary data, make sure that you check which cash-specific secondary data sources are available. Finally, when mapping stakeholders, take into account those that can influence significantly or are important to the success of a potential cash intervention.

You will find a number of tools that will help assess communities, market and financial services – particularly the RAM and MAG, and a helpful overview can be found in the roadmap for assessment in the Cash in Emergencies Toolkit
