Humanitarian assistance increasingly supports recipients with assistance that can serve multiple purposes and thereby address a range of households’ essential needs, while at the same time explicitly seeking to have a positive impact on the local market. With this in mind, it becomes paramount to understand the impacts of different forms of assistance on households and the local economy.
IDAP will equip WFP with improved knowledge on how people use their assistance; to what extent their food security is improved, the transfer value that can sufficiently secure their food needs and to what extent the local economy is affected.
IDAP simulates how humanitarian response (e.g. cash injections) and negative shocks – including droughts, foods, and welfare loss through other means – affect the spending decisions of households and the impact that assistance may have on recipient families and beyond.
