Event description

Description

In recent years, Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) has emerged as one of the most significant innovations in international humanitarian assistance. By 2015, two billion dollars was spent on cash and vouchers and the global trend is increasing. The benefits of CTP have been shown to cut across multiple sectors to address women’s empowerment, food security, emissions reduction, education and healthcare. While CTP is widely recognised to be an essential tool to enhance humanitarian response, it is not a silver bullet or panacea.

Join us as we launch the Cash Learning Partnership’s new State of the World’s Cash report. The paper takes stock of the progress made by the humanitarian sector in using CTP, analyses the successes and obstacles and identifies the essential next steps required to accelerate progress in the coming years.

Building on ODI's work with the High Level Panel of Humanitarian Cash Transfers and subsequent ODI research which used case studies in Iraq, Ukraine, Nepal, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo, this event asks: What is the current state of cash-transfer programming in emergencies? What further changes are necessary to increase the scale and improve the quality of cash transfer programming to maximise the benefits for affected people? What are the implications of these changes for the role and functions of donors, implementing agencies, coordinating bodies, host governments and the private sector?
