MENA Webinar Series: Tackling Gender-Based Violence via Cash and Voucher Assistance

Gender-based violence (GBV) is rampant — globally, one in three women experiences some form of violence or abuse. GBV is pervasive in humanitarian settings and anecdotal evidence points to the increase in GBV since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

12 October 2022


Since 2018, there has been an increased focus on the use of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) for protection outcomes, including the integration of CVA into GBV response. An array of guidance and tools on the topic are now available. In their 2022 Humanitarian Action Overview, UNFPA outlined that cash transfers would be an integral part of their GBV prevention and response approach. However, evidence from the use of CVA for GBV outcomes is scarce and opportunities to leverage CVA within a GBV case management framework are rarely seized. Significant knowledge gaps remain on the topic for CVA and GBV specialists alike.

To fill this gap and raise the interest of practitioners, the CALP Network is hosting a series of webinars on this theme looking at the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Join us for these exciting webinars as we draw on the learning in Turkey, Northwest Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan.

Expert panelists will share:

  • Evidence about the impact programming has had on the lives of GBV survivors including the LGBTQI community, refugees, internally displaced and host nationals.
  • What they have learned as organizations on their journey towards designing and implementing innovative approaches to support survivors of gender-based violence.
  • Key takeaways and learning as we look forward.
