This article examines how households in the Tillabery region, in Niger, responded given early cash intervention, and its impact on household food access and ability to cope and recover from a food crisis. Food-access indicators are linked to the early cash-transfer programme and household social and demographic characteristics, and the relationships examined using descriptive and econometric methods. Although results indicate that the early cash-transfer programme had a positive impact on food access and reducing vulnerability, they also suggest, contrary to expectations, that the intervention was limited in contributing longer lasting impact on households' food security status. © 2015 Taylor & Francis.
