Community Meeting: Outcomes of CVA Policy Dialogue

The CVA community is invited to a 1-hour online event to reflect and feedback on the findings of the CVA Policy Dialogue . 

16 July 2024
13:00 UTC

Last year BHA and the CALP Network initiated a ‘Policy Dialogue’ process focused on the changes needed to make a break-through on locally led and people-centred Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA). 

As part of this process, consultations were undertaken with country, regional and global communities in order to gather their insights. The key findings have now been brought together in a ‘Draft Outcomes Document’ which will be presented to you during this meeting. Please do join us to learn more, and to provide further feedback. 

By coming together we will: 

  1. Build collective awareness of the views shared across the community on locally-led and people centred CVA
  2. Encourage reflections and feedback, identifying areas of agreement and disagreement 
  3. Feed into the outcomes document, which will form a key influencing piece, before it is finalized. 

Don’t miss out on being part of this important policy dialogue.
