Current Contextual Gaps
Today
But
So
• Aid agencies are now aware that cash transfer programming (CTP) is a viable disaster
response option
• Growing need to advocate for a better coordination and institutionalisation of CTP
• Document evidence on impact of CTP
• Growing need for capacity building in CTP
• CaLP enters its second strategic phase
Shift in Focus
2015
Phase 2
Building on Phase 1 activities,
CaLP will focus on:
• Development of institutional
capacity
• advocacy for cash based
• Development of leadership and
programming
coordination structures and
• development of basic
operational partnerships
guidelines and rolling out
• Evidence base on impact of CTP
training to individuals
Phase 1
2006
CaLP Strategy 2012 - 2015
Appropriate and timely humanitarian response routinely includes
appropriate and accountable cash transfer programmes at scale.
CTPs are designed
and implemented
using appropriate
and consistent
information analysis
CTP is implemented
at scale routinely
across emergency
settings to meet the
range of needs of
crisis affected
populations.
There need to be a
clear
leadership/coordina
tion structure for
CTP within the
humanitarian sector
(global and country
level), ensuring
shared learning, a
consistent approach
and the evolution of
best practice.
Humanitarian
agencies have the
tools, procedures
and skill sets to
implement quality
cash and voucher
programmes
rapidly,
appropriately, and
at scale
CaLP’s activities for the coming years
Capacity
building
• Delivering Level 2 training
• Set up Technical Working Groups
• Making CaLP capacity building tools (for e.g. Level 1
training materials...) available so the members of the CoP
can set capacity building activities themselves.
Research
• 6 major researches
• Video case studies
• Evidence mapping
In partnership with
+
Community of practice
Information
sharing and
advocating
•Advocacy for policies, practices and systems
that support quality, scalable and CTP across the
sectors, and for coordination of cash at national and
global levels.
•Develop a more systematic mechanism of sharing and
learning between agencies
•Improving existing information sharing platforms
•Global mapping project
•Global Learning Events

How the research topics were identified
•
•
•
Stakeholder Meetings: London and DC in June 2012.
Survey Monkey: to canvas the community of practice (CoP) for their perspectives
on research themes.
Previous research: recommendations made in previous research reviewed to
identify priority areas in which CaLP has potential added value.
To Stop and Consider
How can the
CaLP add
value to the
discussion on
the use of cash
based
responses in
South Sudan
