To assess the impacts of providing cash transfers based on anticipatory action triggers, compared to a traditional post-disaster response, World Food Programme's (WFP) Office of Evaluation (OEV), together with the World Bank’s DIME department, is conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) impact evaluation in western Nepal. This cluster RCT studies the impact of providing cash transfers based on predictions prior to an anticipated extreme weather event compared to providing cash transfers after the flood peak has materialized.  This two-page brief provides background information for this evaluation, in addition to the evaluation details, purpose, audience, and next steps.

This brief is part of the Evaluation in Action series by the Humanitarian Assistance Evidence Cycle (HAEC) Associate Award. This series highlights ongoing and recently completed impact evaluations from around the world.
