CVA and Climate Change
The Iraq Cash Forum is organizing a webinar under the title “Cash and Voucher Assistance and Climate Change”. The aim of this webinar is to learn how CVA is used to prepare and to respond to climate change effects. This learning opportunity is the starting point to trigger the discussion within the ICF and to establish specific actions among cash and climate change actors.
The webinar will take place on 3rd of May at 2-4pm (GMT+3).
To achieve the objective, the webinar is structured with presentations from different organizations, with an introductory part to learn what is climate change and followed by case studies from Iraq and from other countries. The end of the webinar is dedicated to initiate the discussion on an action plan for cash actors.
