CVA, environment and climate change workshop

We come together to take a deeper look at CVA in relation to the environmental crisis. We look at the potential CVA has as a force for good, what more we can do to integrate environmental thinking into its use and how the wider CVA policy framework could better include environmental considerations.

5 December-22 November 2022

How can Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) be used as part of the response to the environment and climate crisis? How can we mainstream considerations around the environment and climate change in the use of CVA within humanitarian responses? Is policy and operational engagement from CVA humanitarian stakeholders contributing to the fight against climate change and environmental degradation?

Join us on December 5th at 12h00 UTC to discuss these questions, with the objective to increase awareness and commitment vis a vis environment and climate change within the CVA community through key guidance and experience sharing.
