Child Safeguarding in Cash Transfer Programming Tool

It is important to recognise that Cash Transfers present increased and specific risks for beneficiaries versus other forms of emergency assistance. Given children’s greater vulnerability, the impact of CTP on their wellbeing must be considered at all stages of the project cycle.

This tool provides personnel using Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) with advice on the child protection issues to consider during preparation, planning, implementation and monitoring of their programmes. This checklist enables staff to prevent and respond to child protection incidents more effectively thus making their CTP more accountable to children.

This tool was produced by Hannah Thompson, with support from Save the Children, the Women's Refugee Commission, the Child Protection in Crisis Network, and CaLP.
