Cash and Voucher Assistance, Gender Equality and Gender-Based Violence Integration in Humanitarian Response Plans: Venezuelan Refugees and Migrants Case Study
The case study was created with the inputs of the Regional Cash Working Group, supported by CashCap, and UNWOMEN’s regional gender focal point in the Response for Venezuelans. It demonstrates an example of meaningfully integrating gender and cash and voucher assistance at a response level.
In October 2020, the Regional Cash Working Group in Response for Venezuelans (CWG-R4V) conducted a regional survey focused on the systematic integration of Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) in responding to the needs of refugees and migrants from Venezuela. The focus was to increase the uptake of CVA with a strong focus on gender equality, Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and protection. The survey captured the views of 72 CVA focal points from 15 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and fed into the regional strategic planning, more specifically the Refugee and Migrant Response Plan (RMRP) 2021.
