Cash-based interventions and in-kind assistance are the principal modalities for delivering assistance and services. CBIs are intended to provide refugees, asylum-seekers, returnees, internally displaced and stateless people greater dignity of choice in meeting their needs.

They can also contribute to the local economy and foster positive relations with host communities.
