Webinar recording - On the cusp: proposals to advance the cash reform

On 15 June 2016, CaLP hosted a webinar to explore the innovative pathways for change to deliver on the initial vision of the World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) which would see cash-based assistance becoming the default method of support for people in emergencies.

Panelists were invited to present on different components of a reformed humanitarian cash assistance.

  • Sara Almer, CaLP Coordinator, addressed the monitoring of commitments made during the WHS with specific reference to the Agenda for Cash and outlined the upcoming Cash 2020 initiative, a series of discussions and action research around the future of cash in a substantially reformed architecture.
  • Nigel Timmins, Oxfam International's Humanitarian Director explored the pathways towards a greater localisation of humanitarian assistance.
  • Satwik Seshasai, Chief Technology Officer of Segovia, highlighted the potential for a growing role of the private sector and areas for partnerships with humanitarian actors.
  • Finally, Julia Steets, Director of GPPi, focused on the implications of the cash reform on the humanitarian institutional set-up.
