The Cash Learning Partnership

There is a growing recognition in the humanitarian sector that in an emergency, cash transfers and vouchers can be appropriate and effective tools to support people affected by disasters in a way that maintains dignity and choice for beneficiaries while stimulating local economies and markets.

The Cash Learning Partnership aims to improve the quality of emergency cash transfer and voucher programming across the humanitarian sector.

The core purpose of this review, commissioned by the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP), is to evaluate CaLP’s progress since inception and examine the status and continued needs of cash programming in emergencies.

This report will enable the CaLP Steering Committee to make decisions on the appropriate role and shape of CaLP in the future. It is also envisioned that the review will provide a platform for discussion for agencies and donors through the examination of the status of CTP, along with barriers to implementation, and investments needed.

Cash Atlas - CaLP's cash mapping tool

The Cash Atlas is an interactive global mapping tool aiming to visually represent cash transfer programmes at a global level. 

By demonstrating the use and utility of cash transfer programmes (CTP) across different sectors and contexts, the Cash Atlas provides a tool that can be used in advocacy to promote consideration and appropriate use of CTP in humanitarian response. It also aims to be a learning tool for organisations willing to share their experiences.

This project has been developed by CaLP and supported by American Red Cross, ECHO and USAID/OFDA.
