Lessons Learnt and Recommendations for Cash-for-Shelter Programmes in Democratic Republic of the Congo

This document, produced by the Shelter Working Group (SWG) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), aims to bring together lessons learnt and experiences from cash-for-shelter programmes across the country. The term ‘cash-for-shelter’ refers to the use of cash transfer programming1 to improve access to housing and to support the construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation of shelters and houses. In DRC, the majority of these programmes focus on camp and rural contexts and target refugee, internally displaced and returnee populations as well as vulnerable local households.
