Training on Protection in Cash-based Interventions in Washington DC, USA

15th January 2019

This course was developed in 2015 and updated in 2016 by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and by the Women's Refugee Commission (WRC). It aims to strengthen the capacity of humanitarian agency staff to analyze and monitor protection risks and benefits in cash-based programming. It is based upon the Guide for Protection in Cash-based Interventions, published in 2015 by UNHCR and WRC.

This training will:

  • Familiarize humanitarian agency staff with the Guide for Proteciton and Cash-Based Interventions and key resources
  • Provide practical instruction for analyzing and monitoring protection risks and benefits in cash-based interventions

The course targets program managers and technical experts across all areas or sectors of humanitarian response who may consider using cash-based interventions in humanitarian response and protection experts who may consider using cash-based interventions as part of protection activities or programs. Some previous exposure to the basic concepts and vocabulary used in cash and voucher assistance and in protection are expected.

We are running the course in Washington, DC, U.S.A. on January 15, 2019. It is a face-to-face training, and it will not be possible to participate remotely.

Note: While there are no fees for the course, participants are responsible for any travel or associated costs.
