National society cash readiness

Strengthening national humanitarian action and localisation of aid through investments into National Societies of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement  will be fundamental to building the overall capacity of the humanitarian sector to deliver more effective and efficient humanitarian assistance through uptake of cash assistance. In this section you will find resources aiming at supporting entities of the Movement, improving their capacity and operational readiness to provide scalable and timely cash assistance.
