Cash and Markets In The WASH Sector

2016 — By Global WASH Cluster

Market based programming is increasingly heralded as having a critical place in the future of humanitarian programming. The proposed benefits of working through existing market systems include improvements to speed, efficiency and effectiveness of programming and increased beneficiary dignity and choice. Advocates for market based approaches claim that, where feasible, they promote economic recovery, resilience, acceptance and sustainability.

  • locate CTP within the wider spectrum of market based approaches;
  • articulate the motivations and concerns around the use of MPG in the WASH sector;
  • make recommendations for addressing barriers and concerns;
  • initiate a pro-active role for the GWC in influencing and developing the global markets
  • agenda;
