Le rapport « La situation mondiale des transferts monétaires » du CaLP Network indique que l’idée selon laquelle les transferts monétaires seraient plus risqués que d’autres formes d’aide est l’une des barrières principales à l’utilisation fréquente de cette modalité. Ces craintes sont liées à l’insistance de plus en plus franche des bailleurs concernant la lutte contre le terrorisme et contre le blanchiment d’argent, et à l’amenuisement des budgets destinés à l’assistance humanitaire. Le travail du CALP Network sur cette problématique vise à combattre les idées reçues, à faciliter la collaboration et à partager les apprentissages afin de veiller à ce que les transferts monétaires soient systématiquement considérés, tout comme d’autres modalités, en fonction des données probantes disponibles sur les risques réels de toutes les modalités.
Plusieurs organisations travaillent actuellement sur les risques entraînés par les transferts monétaires. Le CALP Network cherche à identifier les synergies entre acteurs, à éviter les duplications et à définir des priorités communes sur lesquelles nous pourrions agir plus efficacement en groupe. Avec le PAM, le CALP Network co-dirige l’élément Risques, priorité du chantier du Grand Bargain sur les transferts monétaires.
