Adoption of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) by the humanitarian community has consistently increased over the last six years. It is likely that the numbers will continue to grow. With large transfer volumes, even a small fraction of duplicate payments may add up to large sums of money with high opportunity costs. In practical terms this means that some people in urgent need of support may not be assisted due to the limited resources available. This use case explores the challenge of ensuring organizations do not duplicate assistance or create gaps in supporting eligible people, families or households.
