Cash Working Group Event Reports

Ethiopia CTP Learning Event

A learning event that took place in Addis Ababa in 2017, brought colleagues from Government, NGOs, donors and the UN to reflect on the use of cash in the current drought response. While cash helped meet some of the drought response objectives, there were significant challenges with scaling-up. There are many lessons to be learned and issues to be addressed to improve future cash responses.  Priorities for collective action were identified (below) and will be further discussed by the CWG: See the short report Here
