Evaluation of Nationwide Cash-For-Work Programme (Lebanon)

In early 2020, Triangle evaluated a complex, nationwide cash-for-work programme for the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, Beirut Office (AICS). Under the programme, AICS had contributed funding for five separate Italian NGOs to implement local infrastructure projects through cash-for-work interventions in four governorates of Lebanon.

The final evaluation report found that AICS’ programme built tangible community resilience by providing short-term employment for vulnerable Lebanese and Syrians, while also creating public assets of real value. Triangle’s study drew upon a wide range of key informant interviews and focus group discussions, which were held across all governorates. The quantitative analysis team augmented the qualitative findings through detailed review of the various projects’ data sets. The report concluded with actionable recommendations for making an already excellent humanitarian strategy even more impactful in future interventions.
