Social Protection & CVA in Beirut, Lebanon

3 - 4 April 2019

The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) is a global partnership of humanitarian actors engaged in policy, practice and research within cash transfer programming (CTP). Formed of a community of practice including over 150 organisations and more than 5,000 individuals in the humanitarian sector, CaLP is based on learning, knowledge sharing, networking and coordination around the appropriate and timely use of CTP in humanitarian response.

This is a 2-part training course on Social Protection and Cash & Voucher Assistance.

Part 1: Introduction to Social Protection & CTP for Humanitarian Stakeholders
This session will cover social protection concepts, and introduce participants to the linkages between humanitarian assistance and social protection, and programmatic options for forging and using these links. It will also briefly explore the role of humanitarian actors in this process, and provide examples of how social protection systems have been used to deliver humanitarian assistance in different contexts. In general, the target audience for this training would be humanitarian stakeholders who
have limited or no experience of working with social protection systems. 

Part 2: Designing Humanitarian Cash-based assistance linked to Social Assistance
This full-day training session covers the key processes/steps involved in designing humanitarian assistance that contributes to strengthening/developing social assistance systems in the country. This follows the project cycle from assessment, through design, implementation and learning, and provides clarity on the role of humanitarian actors in linking humanitarian assistance with social assistance. This training is based on the CaLP publication ‘Working with Cash Based Safety Nets in Humanitarian Contexts’. 

Please note that this course assumes prior knowledge of CTP concepts and application. It is not
suitable for participants who have no experience of Humanitarian CTP.
