The Somali Cash Consortium (SCC) was formed in late 2017 to provide vulnerable populations in disaster and conflict-affected districts in Somalia with monthly, multi-purpose unconditional cash transfers (UCT).1 Currently in its sixth year of activities, the SCC distributed three cycles of UCT between April and August 2022 to vulnerable households in districts of Banadir, Qansax Dheere, Baidoa, Buur Hakaba, Diinsor, Baardheere, Doolow, Kismayo, Balcad, Jowhar, Galkacyo, Buuhoodle and Owdweyne and Hard to reach districts of Waajid, Jamaame, Belet Xaawo and Afgoye2. The cash transfer amounts were set in line with the harmonised super-region transfer values recommended by the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), based on the Minimum Expenditure Basket (MEB) of each targeted district. The Somali Cash Consortium is led by Concern Worldwide and consists of six implementing partner organisations: ACTED, Concern Worldwide, Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI), Danish Refugee Council (DRC), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), and Save the Children (SCI).
