Transferts monétaires sectoriels
Les transferts monétaires peuvent permettre aux personnes en situation de crise de répondre à leurs besoins liés à un secteur spécifique du domaine humanitaire, comme l’eau, l’alimentation, les abris, les moyens de subsistance ou la protection. Les transferts monétaires sectoriels peuvent être affectés ou non affectés, assortis ou non de conditions et ils sont généralement distribués dans le cadre d’options d’aides variées, qui peuvent inclure une aide en nature et une aide sous forme de services.
Chaque secteur doit réfléchir à plusieurs questions et prendre en compte les difficultés, avantages et risques au moment de soutenir la reprise économique des bénéficiaires dans son domaine d’expertise. Ce travail implique de disposer de données probantes, d’outils, de directives et de capacités. Atteindre les objectifs spécifiques à un secteur par le biais des transferts monétaires requiert également une compréhension multisectorielle des besoins et de ce qui constitue la sécurité économique des ménages ; voir la page Transferts monétaires à usages multiples. Alors qu’il existe dans certains secteurs une longue expérience de la mise en œuvre des transferts monétaires, d’autres se tournent tout juste vers cette modalité. La plupart des secteurs humanitaires se sont engagés dans cette voie et ont redoublé d’efforts pour mettre en place des transferts monétaires sectoriels. Le groupe mondial de coordination des clusters coordonne également le travail inter-clusters afin d’accroître l’utilisation sectorielle des transferts monétaires.
Le CALP Network travaille en étroite collaboration avec les groupes techniques/groupes de travail sur les transferts monétaires au sein des clusters mondiaux, qui ont défini leurs priorités et plans de travail pour 2020 lors de leurs réunions régulières. Une vue d’ensemble générale et des détails spécifiques sur ces priorités dans chaque cluster mondial est disponible ici.
