Concern Worldwide as other humanitarian and development agencies are increasingly providing assistance in the form of cash to achieve programmatic objectives. The experience gained by Concern and other organisations shows that generally, where it is feasible and appropriate to do so, monetary assistance can have more positive outcomes for recipients than traditional assistance provided in-kind.

In order to better understand the scale and scope of our cash use, cash modalities are now captured in annual reporting. The following report is based on the data from our 2016 annual reports.
