The East Africa RCVWG is a dedicated platform which is designed to share information, provide peer technical support, coordinate and foster learning about cash and voucher transfer programming in the region. The RCVWG involves humanitarian stakeholders, donors, and private sector actors.

This meeting discussed coordination from a number of angles, gathering input to feed into the GPPI draft White Paper (see here) and learning about the reality of coordination in different contexts.
Below are the meeting minutes and presentations from our previous meetings.
A round table consultative meeting was held on the 27th of February at the ACTED offices in Nairobi. The meeting was arranged to bring together some of CaLP's members in East Africa for a 'roundtable' discussion to consider regional CTP (Cash Transfer Programming) priorities. The aim was to start to shape an agenda on which we can work together and which will inform CaLP's plans in EA on the coming year/s.

The last regional learning event was held in December.
