    • D.

      Every beneficiary gets the same commodities

    • E.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Households are able to prioritise needs
    B. Beneficiaries have flexibility & choice
    C. Agencies pay less to transport goods
    E. Local markets thrive
    Explanation
    CTP, or Cash Transfer Programming, is a method of providing assistance to individuals or households in need by giving them cash or vouchers instead of in-kind goods or services. This approach allows households to prioritize their needs and decide how to allocate the funds according to their specific circumstances. It also provides beneficiaries with flexibility and choice, as they can decide what items or services they need the most. Additionally, CTP can reduce costs for agencies, as they do not need to transport and distribute physical goods. Finally, by injecting cash into local economies, CTP can help stimulate local markets and promote economic growth.

    True or false - DREF allocations can be  a 2-step approach if information on the disaster is limited. A NS can request a small DREF allocation for assessment, then revise. True  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In situations where there is limited information on a disaster, a National Society (NS) can request a small DREF (Disaster Relief Emergency Fund) allocation for assessment purposes. This allows the NS to conduct an initial assessment of the situation and gather more information about the disaster. Based on the findings of the assessment, the NS can then revise their request for a larger DREF allocation if necessary. Therefore, the statement "DREF allocations can be a 2-step approach if information on the disaster is limited" is true.

    True or false - An EPoA application does not need to consider DRR and NS capacity building as part of the response. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False. An EPoA (Emergency Preparedness and Response Plan) application should consider DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) and NS (National Society) capacity building as part of the response. DRR aims to reduce the vulnerability of communities to disasters, while NS capacity building focuses on strengthening the capabilities of local organizations to effectively respond to emergencies. Both are crucial components of an effective emergency response plan and should be considered in an EPoA application.

    Explanation
    Budgets are intended to support the present action plan in numbers by quantifying the resources needed to execute the plan. They also help in planning the required resources by determining the amount of money, manpower, and materials needed for the plan. Budgets forecast planned expenditure by estimating the costs associated with the action plan. They also monitor progress against plans by comparing the actual expenditure with the budgeted amount. Budgets validate procurement and payment requests by ensuring that they align with the allocated budget. They require approval of expenditure to ensure that spending is within the budgeted limits. Budgets advise donors on change of plans by providing information on how the changes will impact the budget. Finally, budgets report actual expenditure against the budget to track financial performance.

    True or False – functional markets or its capacity are not essential factors to consider when assessing the feasibility of a cash transfer intervention.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Functional markets or their capacity are essential factors to consider when assessing the feasibility of a cash transfer intervention. This is because the effectiveness and success of a cash transfer program heavily rely on the availability and accessibility of functioning markets where beneficiaries can use the cash to purchase goods and services. If markets are not functional or lack the capacity to meet the demand generated by the cash transfer, the intervention may not achieve its intended objectives. Therefore, it is important to consider the state of markets and their capacity when assessing the feasibility of a cash transfer intervention.
