June 9, 2021


The COVID-19 response has been a catalyst for many Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies (NSs) to use Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA). This has required some NSs to undertake Fast-Track Cash Preparedness to enable them to deliver CVA. This Webinar will explain what Fast Track Cash Preparedness entails and how this differs from the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement standard Cash Preparedness. We will hear examples from Armenian Red Cross and Belarus Red Cross.

Speakers include:

  • Hayarpi Karapetyan, CVA focal point, Armenian Red Cross
  • Igor Trusov, CVA focal point, Belarus Red Cross
  • Bilal Shah, Officer, Cash Preparedness and Capacity Building – Global, IFRC
  • Gianluca RIGOLIO, Cash Coordinator, Regional Office Europe, IFRC

DATE:  Wednesday 09 June 2021
TIME: 10:00 Geneva/11:00 Nairobi/16:00 Kuala Lumpur/20:00 Suva

The webinar will last 1 hour and will be delivered in English.
