The CALP Network Annual Report 2019-20
As the scale of Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) continues to increase rapidly – progressing from $2 billion in 2015 to $5.6 billion in 2019 – issues related to quality are of growing importance, with and a heightened focus on the preferences of people in crisis. The role of the CALP Network in driving forward quality improvements and learning across the humanitarian system is more crucial than ever.
This report brings together some of the major highlights of the CALP Network’s work between April 2019 and March 2020. Throughout that 12-month period, the CALP Network’s work played a critical role in supporting humanitarian practitioners working to design and deliver CVA more effectively and at a greater scale than ever before.
In the year under review, the breadth and depth of evidence on a wide range of issues related to CVA increased – including key issues such as CVA and data protection, risk and links with social protection. Thousands of people participated in webinars, downloaded publications, drew ideas from the Programme Quality Toolbox, contributed to debates in the CALP Network discussion groups, attended training events in-person and online, and shared ideas and practice through multiple other channels. It was a packed year, with much to celebrate in terms of moving the CVA agenda forward.
