Multi-Purpose Cash grant (MPC) is a pivotal instrument of the humanitarian response plan in Lebanon both in terms of coverage and financial volume. About 60% of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon receive MPC assistance. Maximising the impact of MPC can therefore have important and at scale effects for the well-being of Syrian refugees. “Cash Plus” is an avenue to boost the outcomes of MPC by addressing non-financial and structural barriers to need coverage.
Accordingly, this study commissioned by Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) on behalf of CAMEALEON, explores how and when to combine Multi-Purpose Cash (MPC) assistance with targeted complementary services to cover essential needs.
