'The cash reform in action' - summary of the Global Cash Forum now available!

The Global Cash Forum brought together 200 key actors with 30 speakers and more than 500 online participants, representing leading thinking and practice in CTP from across the globe. Participants included UN agencies, small and large NGOs, donors, private sector actors, academics and specialist consultants. Collectively, the forum addressed the substantial issues that will enable the sector to achieve the potential of cash programming.

The Forum, organised by the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) and designed to complement other initiatives such as the Grand Bargain, featured a wide range of lively discussions and a keynote speech by Androulla Kaminara (Director, DG ECHO) on ECHO’s vision for the future of cash programming in humanitarian response

The report summarises current developments in Cash Transfer Programming (CTP), as captured at the recent Global Cash Forum.In recent years, CTP has emerged as one of the most significant innovations in humanitarian response. Major donors and agencies have made public commitments to increase its use, for instance through the Grand Bargain. Now, work is under way to build the sector-wide capacity to turn those commitments into action.

The ‘Key Messages and Actions’ section of this report summarises the major discussion points from the forum. The second section provides more details, with links to recorded presentations from all speakers for reference.
