Home - What we do - State of the World's Cash 2


Following the success of 2018’s State of the World’s Cash report, CaLP is developing a second iteration, the State of the World’s Cash Report 2 (SOWC2). This follow up report will track progress, capture new learning and provide an overview of the rapidly shifting landscape in cash and voucher assistance (CVA).

The State of the World’s Cash Report 2 will…

  • Provide a neutral and critical analysis of the current state of CVA globally, including the extent to which it is contributing to quality in programming and outcomes for people in need.
  • Assess progress towards global commitments in CVA since 2017.
  • Identify practical actions to support further progress and address gaps and challenges.

Your input is needed
