High level meeting: The need for a humanitarian policy refresh
While the use of cash as part of humanitarian response has grown significantly in the last seven years, recent research shows that much more is required. A new collective vision, along with renewed commitments, are essential to driving forward the development of cash and voucher assistance as a key means of achieving more people-centred and effective aid.
This virtual meeting will feature remarks from:
- Sarah Charles, USAID’s Assistant Administrator of the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance
- Innocent Tshilombo, who has lived experience of receiving cash and voucher assistance
- Smruti Patel, Director of Global Mentoring Initiative and co-lead of the Global Locally Led Response and CVA Working Group
- Michael Kohler, Deputy Director General of ECHO
- Plus a brief presentation of research findings by CALP.
Join us for the launch of a collaborative process to refresh and renew our policy commitments towards ensuring better assistance for crisis-affected populations globally.
The meeting takes place on 15 June at 1 pm UTC for 1 hour and will be conducted in English, with simultaneous interpretation available in Arabic, French and Spanish.
Please confirm your participation at your earliest convenience. Spaces are limited to two senior representatives (e.g. CEO, Humanitarian Director, etc.) per organisation.
We will be sharing a more detailed agenda soon, along with supporting documents.
