CASH WEEK: CVA, Data Responsibility and Risks in London, UK

4th December 2019

This session will discuss evidence and advance debate around:
Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CT) and Anti Money Laundering measures on CVA, and Data Responsibility and Protection in Humanitarian CVA.

At the Grand Bargain Subworkstream meeting on Cash in May 2019, the organisations present agreed that further evidence and guidance is needed to address this blockage and to help organisations understand and mitigate the risks that exist.  There are many activities ongoing to address this in signatory organisations but these efforts are currently siloed, risking gaps and duplications.

There are multiple types of risk which apply to humanitarian CVA programming. Many of these apply across all humanitarian assistance but some - in particular risks around data, financial compliance and working with the private sector - are more acute in CVA programming than in other types of assistance.

CaLP and its members have to date done a lot to address gaps in knowledge and provide practical guidance related to CVA and risk, however as CVA continues to grow in scale new challenges and dimensions of risk emerge.

CaLP proposes to use the opportunity of the cash community coming together to bring out the latest evidence and advance the debate for quality CVA in two key areas: 

1) Risks and Impact of Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CT) and Anti Money Laundering measures on CVA

2) Risks and Ethical dilemmas surrounding Data Responsibility and Protection in Humanitarian CVA
