El informe del Estado Global de los Programas de Transferencias Monetarias de la CALP Network encontró que uno de los principales obstáculos para la utilización sistemática de los PTM es la percepción de que éstos incurrirían en más riesgos que otras formas de asistencia. Esta preocupación está vinculada a un mayor énfasis por parte de los donantes a la lucha contra el terrorismo y el blanqueo de dinero, así como a la reducción de los presupuestos para la asistencia humanitaria. El trabajo de la CALP Network bajo este tema tiene como objetivo desmentir mitos, facilitar la colaboración y compartir el aprendizaje para garantizar que los PTM sean considerados sistemáticamente y con igualdad, de acuerdo con las evidencias de riesgos reales que existen a través de las diferentes modalidades.
Varias organizaciones están trabajando actualmente en materia de PTM y riesgo. La CALP Network se encuentra trabajando para identificar sinergias entre actores, evitar la duplicación de esfuerzos y definir prioridades comunes que puedan abordarse mejor de forma colectiva. Junto con el Programa Mundial de Alimentos (PMA), la CALP Network colidera la prioridad de riesgo dentro del grupo de trabajo del Gran Pacto sobre la asistencia en efectivo.
