CTP and Social Protection Part 2: Designing CTPs that are Linked to Social Protection

This is the second part of a 2-part course on linking humanitarian CTP with Social Protection. We recommend you take Part 1: An introduction to CTP and Social Protection before continuing with this course. This course involves an in-depth look at linking humanitarian CTP and Social Protection.

This course is designed for humanitarian staff with existing knowledge of cash transfer programming, who want to learn more about linking humanitarian CTP with Social Protection. To get the most from this course, you should already have a good understanding of humanitarian cash based programming, either from practical experience or from completion of CaLP’s Core Courses, or both.  You should also have completed the first part of this 2-part course, Introduction to linking humanitarian cash assistance and social protection.

This course does not provide an introduction to humanitarian cash-based programming, nor to social protection. If you are not familiar with humanitarian CTP, please take a look at the CaLP CTP Fundamentals course or browse CaLP's course catalogue for more information.

By the end of this course, you will be able to: 

  • List the five suggested steps for designing cash-based humanitarian assistance that links to and utilises, or contributes to strengthening, social assistance systems in the country. 
  • Describe each of the five steps for designing CTPs. 
  • Explain the activities that humanitarian actors need to conduct at each step, and how they differ compared to the usual actions of the emergency response cycle 
  • Describe how the social assistance context influences the choice of how to link cash-based humanitarian assistance with social assistance. 
  • Identify potential communication and co-ordination requirements across each step 
  • Demonstrate ability to apply the steps in order to make appropriate decisions
  • Collaborate with appropriate partners at each step.

The course will take around 3 hours to complete.
