CaLP Core Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) Skills for Technical Programme Design and Quality in Portland,OR, US

3 - 7 April 2017

The aim of this five (5) day face-to-face training is to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence of humanitarian organisations' practitioners for cash transfer technical design and quality. This course targets technical or operational staff responsible for leading and overseeing the design and monitoring of cash transfer programmes (CTP).

This group might include technical specialists from many sectors, including but not limited to specialists in food security, livelihoods, WASH and shelter. The course is focused on a technical and programmatic perspective, and it incorporates examples and case studies from multiple sectors and from multi-sectoral programmes.

The objectives of this course are to be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to design, implement and monitor cash transfer programmes to ensure quality
  • Identify and mitigate the programmatic risks of using CTP
  • Make technical and programmatic decisions for designing and implementing CTP across sectors
  • Produce, for the programme side, organisation-level standard operating procedures (SOPs) for designing and delivering CTP
  • Identify complementary functions within programme and operations teams that require working together for high quality CTP

Attendance on all five days from April 3 to 7 is necessary. Applications will be received and invitations will be sent on a rolling basis.

Priority will be given to applicants based on or near the West Coast who work at humanitarian organizations who are partners or are exploring becoming partners of USAID's Office of Food for Peace (FFP). No lunch will be provided on training days, but there will not be a fee or charge to attend the training.

CaLP does not have the resources to support member organizations or others with transportation expenses or lodging, for those who are not based in Portland, OR.
