New CaLP Glosary available now!

As the scale and variety of cash transfer programming (CTP) continues to grow, the language we use to talk about it also evolves. The CTP Glossary intends to provide clarity and encourage the harmonised use and common understanding of CTP terminology.

Based on consultation and feedback from users, CaLP is happy to announce the release of its updated CTP Glossary. It has been approved by CaLP’s Technical Advisory Group (TAG), and endorsed by participants in the cash workstream of the Grand Bargain, and the Good Humanitarian Donorship (GHD) group.

Although the changes were relatively limited, it is worth highlighting the following:

  • Several definitions have been simplified to improve clarity, including for restriction and conditionality. There is also a new annex containing use cases and examples for the application of these terms.
  • The definition of ‘multipurpose cash grant’ has some minor modifications. The term and definition for ‘multisector programme’ have been removed as most feedback indicated this was creating confusion and doesn’t reflect how people generally use the term ‘multisector’.
  • Addition of some new terms (e.g. ‘cash plus’, ‘market-based programming’), including some relating to digital payments to reflect updates to the ELAN Glossary
  • The diagram we use to visualise some key CTP terms has also been updated, and is available to download as a pdf through the website.
