Asia Regional Cash Working Group

The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) leads the Asia Regional Cash Working Group (RCWG) based in Bangkok, Thailand. The Asia RCWG formed in 2013 as a dedicated platform to share information and provide technical support, coordinate and learn about cash and voucher transfer programming in the region. The RCWG works with humanitarian stakeholders, donors, and private sector actors to foster dialogue and contextualise regional priorities in Cash Transfer Programming. The CaLP Asia Regional Focal Point leads the RCWG and liaises with Cash Working Groups (CWGs) in five (5) countries in the region: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, and the Philippines.

Events & Updates

The Cash Transfer Programming and Persons of Concern Briefing Note is now available!

CaLP Asia conducted a Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) and Persons of Concern (POC) workshop at Centre Point Hotel Chidlom in Bangkok, Thailand on 14-15 March 2016. The aim was to increase knowledge and understanding of cash transfer programming for those providing assistance in humanitarian contexts for Persons of Concern. The purpose of this briefing note is to demonstrate adaptive practices for providing essential assistance to the most vulnerable POC. The ten key lessons summarise the key points from desk research, discussions at a CaLP Asia CTP and POC Workshop and pre- and post-workshop consultations with various stakeholders. They provide objective guidance for practitioners working with CTP and POC to enhance the assessment, design, delivery and monitoring of CTP in POC contexts in Asia and beyond.
