Une coordination efficace peut éviter les risques de lacunes et de duplication dans les interventions humanitaires et optimiser l’impact des transferts monétaires pour les populations affectées par une crise, mais aussi aider à tirer le maximum de financements humanitaires limités. Cependant, le rapport « La situation mondiale des transferts monétaires » du réseau CaLP montre que la coordination des transferts monétaires est vue comme inefficace et variable, ce qui affecterait fortement les opérations.
95 bailleurs, ONG internationales et nationales, acteurs du secteur privé et une agence de l’ONU ont demandé plus d’informations sur deux problématiques clés concernant la coordination des transferts monétaires :
- qui doit être responsable de la coordination des transferts monétaires ;
- quelle doit être la portée de la responsabilité des groupes de travail sur les transferts monétaires, notamment concernant les transferts monétaires à usages multiples.
Nous cherchons à contribuer à la résolution de cette problématique à trois niveaux : en aidant les groupes de travail sur les transferts monétaires au niveau régional ; en contribuant à trouver des solutions pratiques pour la coordination des transferts monétaires au niveau mondial ; et en organisant des discussions basées sur des données probantes sur les problématiques clés, en soulignant les points de discussion essentiels et les opportunités de progrès.
