Special Session: Thunes Humanitarian payment solutions Working Group (closed)

23 April 2024

Online register at

Session timing, 23rd April 2024 8-9.30 US-EST

The Working Group is hosted by the CALP Network and supports humanitarian Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) implementing organisations to leverage the latest digital payment infrastructure, to improve the quality, quantity and impact of support. It focuses on organisations seeking multi-country or multi-stakeholder payment solutions. Its members include the majority of large and medium-sized CVA implementing organisations globally. In 2022 humanitarian organisations distributed $7.92bn of CVA.

CVA implementers and Payment Solution Providers (PSPs) have both expressed a need for greater collaboration to improve outcomes for aid recipients. Through Special Sessions, the payments group creates a safe place to foster collaboration, bringing together implementers and PSPs to develop common understandings of the challenges and opportunities presented in digital humanitarian CVA payments. By facilitating these conversations, the group transforms one-on-one interactions (between aid organisations and individual blockchain providers) into a more efficient network.
