CALP Members Event 2024

11 June 2024


Reminder: this event starts at 1:00 pm UTC (9:00am New York/ 1:00pm Dakar/ 2:00pm London/ 3:00pm Geneva/ 4:00pm Amman).


CALP became a membership organisation in 2016, primarily made up of international NGOs. Since then, CALP’s membership has grown and significantly diversified, with the fastest growing segments of members representing private sector actors (providers of financial and technology-based services) and local NGOs.

In 2020, CALP changed its strategy to operate as a network to accelerate the growth of CVA, while also addressing the increasing complexities related to increasing CVA quality and scale for crisis-affected populations. CALP members, as well as the wider network of non-members, became ever more important to engage and collaborate with across CALP’s work.

CALP members are invited to an online event to connect with each other and the CALP team, discuss and feed into CALP’s strategic direction and learn more about how to engage in their areas of interest.
