New research from World Food Programme and Trinity College Dublin/University College Dublin added to #GenderCash collection

Today two new research papers from World Food Programme and Trinity College Dublin/University College Dublin will be added to CaLP’s ‘Collected Papers on Gender and Cash Transfer Programmes in Humanitarian Contexts.’

Initially made up of the research presented at CaLP’s Gender Symposium, which took place in February 2018, this collection will continue to be updated as new research becomes available.

The Collection was originally launched on Wednesday 12 September 2018 with submissions from UN Women, Concern Worldwide and World Food Programme. On Monday 15 October 2018, CaLP adds two new papers to the Collection: submissions from Linda Anne Lumbasi, Trinity College Dublin/University College Dublin and Desiree Zwanck Lwambo and Simon Renk, World Food Programme West Africa’s Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (VAM) Unit’s Gender and Markets Initiative.

These papers will be launched to coincide with an event on 15 October entitled ‘Cash and Gender’, co-led with CARE, ActionAid, UN Women, and the Women's Refugee Commission. The event is part of Cash Week 2018, a series of events being organised by CaLP from 15-19 October 2018 to advance issues, reflect and prepare for the future of cash transfer programming. The event will take place from 12:45 – 17:00 UK time. Follow CaLP on Twitter for live updates from the event.
