Supply Chain Modeling for Cash and Voucher Programs in Darfur


WFP expected more of its assistance programs to be delivered in the form of cash or vouchers

Why WFP needed to understand markets:
– Unreliable supply of food commodities, grown locally or not, can impact the purchasing power of the population not receiving vouchers
– In markets without competition, certain traders could manipulate prices


We proposed to study/model the commodity supply chain for Darfur intended to complement and inform current WFP and partners’ analysis by approaching the topic from the supply side.

Our study provided an in-depth examination of the cost drivers within the supply chain for food commodities, as well as the reliability of the supply across multiple markets.
