Accountability To Affected populations (AAP)
Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) is transforming the
way that humanitarian assistance is implemented, as it
becomes an increasingly common modality to deliver relief
across sectors. In recent years, donors and implementers
globally have made major commitments to scale up the use
of, and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of, CVA.
In a context of the increasing frequency, complexity and
protracted nature of humanitarian crises, where needs are
outstripping available funding, new ways of delivering CVA
at scale is being explored. This includes the consolidation
of sectoral assistance through multi-purpose cash (MPC)
grants and new operational models to improve the value
for money of programmes. Many of these models are also
leveraging digital technology to achieve economies of scale.
