A video report in USAID's "IMPACTblog" examines a cash transfer program in Zimbabwe, where, following a drought this year, "the numbers needing food assistance will rise to nearly 1.6 million people in coming months." "In parts of Zimbabwe where market conditions allow, the World Food Programme is arranging for cash to be given to those in need," the blog writes, adding, "In this way, people make their own decisions about buying their food -- and the local economy benefits too" (Rodriguez, 1/7).
