Building Blocks Entry points for humanitarians

Building Blocks: entry points for humanitarians when linking cash and voucher assistance in nascent Social Protection systems

Social Protection and Cash

06 February 2020


Humanitarian assistance is often provided in contexts of state fragility, where Social Protection (SP) systems are non-existent, or nascent. In such contexts, humanitarian actors can play a critical role in designing Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) so that it can form the basis for social transfers, and in shaping SP policy. This webinar will explore the successes and challenges of doing this in practice, based on the examples of Haiti, where this collaboration has started since 2015, and Mali, since 2013.
