New Thematic Page on Gender, Protection and CTP

To realise the potential benefits of cash based assistance for everyone, there is need to foster dialogue between cash, gender and protection actors. Actors from different sectors need to work together, share experiences and learning, and address gaps and overlaps. This also requires improving coordination between clusters and cash working groups. We need to create opportunities to learn from government experiences with social protection systems and use evidence from development programmes, testing the learning and ensuring its applicability in different contexts.
