Cash and social Protection

Access to adequate social protection, especially cash transfers where these are appropriate, is essential at times of crisis. Linking, building on, or aligning humanitarian cash responses with national social protection programmes and systems, where feasible and appropriate, can contribute to an efficient and effective response and achieve lasting results.
COVID-19 national responses are accelerating this trend using cash as their preferred support modality for social assistance.
