Somalia Cash Based Response Working Group

The Cash Based Response Working Group (CBRWG) is an independent forum of technical professionals dedicated to cash programming in Somalia. Established in April 2008, the CBRWG developed out of an informal working group that was striving to coordinate and harmonise their responses in Somalia. The mandate is to ensure quality assurance in the design and implementation of cash based responses in Somalia, and to support coordination efforts. This includes identifying and agreeing upon best practices in cash response programming as part of a sustainable livelihoods response. It also includes linking relief rehabilitation, development planning and implementation processes.  

The overall aim of CBRWG is to streamline the design, development and implementation of cash based responses in Somalia. The group will strive to improve programs and their ability to benefit vulnerable groups in Somalia.
