Mobile Money Systems for Humanitarian Delivery: World Vision Cash Transfer Project in Gihembe Refugee Camp, Rwanda

In October 2014, the European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) launched a knowledge hub on communications technology and security risk management. The first publication of this project brought together 17 authors who analysed in 11 articles how communications technology is changing the operational environment, the ways in which communications technology is creating new opportunities for humanitarian agencies to respond to emergencies, and the impact that new programmes have on how we manage security.

This article draws learnings from a World Vision cash transfer project in Rwanda to understand the use of mobile money systems for humanitarian delivery.
