Gender and Inclusion

Existing inequalities mean that disasters and conflicts impact people of different genders, ages, abilities and other context-specific characteristics differently. Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) is one of the most significant developments in humanitarian assistance in recent years. But the relationship between CVA and gender and other vulnerabilities and capacities is poorly understood.

In 2018, CaLP’s #GenderCash Symposium in Nairobi brought together humanitarian actors working on gender and cash and voucher assistance (CVA), and formally launched efforts to better integrate the two – a commitment enshrined in the Agenda for Collective Action that emerged from the event. Over the following year, CaLP compiled evidence of how CVA can support gender responsive programming in a high profile report, Collected Papers on Gender and Cash Transfer Programmes in Humanitarian Contexts. Since then, other actors have taken forward this work to build evidence and develop tools and training to better integrate gender and CVA.

However, gender alone can be seen as a limiting theme, with a tendency to focus only on women and girls. Meanwhile, the needs of older people and people with special needs are still often ignored, not to mention other vulnerable and marginalised groups.

Current priorities

Under this theme, CaLP aims to encourage actors to widen their focus to all marginalized groups, and champion a fuller understanding of how CVA can go beyond the notion of ‘do no harm’ towards addressing socio-economic inequalities.
