Cash Voucher Assistance, Social protection and Cash Plus programmes
About the webinar
We are happy to welcome you to another webinar on Cash Voucher Assistance (CVA). This time we will be examining the linkages between CVA and social protection and Cash Plus programmes. We will closely follow a Case Study by Mercy Corps that looks into impact programs that combine cash interventions with vocational trainings on violence reduction. You can view the Case Study here.
In summary, we explore:
Linkages to social protection; Current status:
- Maturity of social protection systems and function of humanitarian response
- Opportunities and barriers
- Factors that influence coordination between CVA and social protection
- Introduction of Case Study: Can economic interventions reduce violence?
- Future Priority actions
Information management design:
- How can the use of technology and information management support efficient implementation? Example using ActivityInfo based on the Case Study
- Key considerations for information management design
