An alternative approach that has been suggested is to report the distribution of cash/ vouchers etc as a deliverable (output) of the reported activity and therefore by using . However, as there is a data use requirement to be able to identify activities using cash transfers / vouchers etc. I am not sure this would suffice unless all publishers were using the same indicator(s)? I have found that the UN Humanitarain Response Indicators do include an indicator for Food Security of [‘Number of beneficiaries receiving food, non-food items, cash transfers and vouchers as % of planned] (https://www.humanitarianresponse.info/en/applications/ir/indicator/f-output-1)’ but I think some work would be required to develop this into something more generic?
The other option is of course to add a new element so that activities could be tagged accordingly however I don’t think we would want to do this unless we really have exhausted all other options.
Therefore thoughts from others in the community would be very welcome
