Cash Assistance and COVID-19, Emerging Field Practices II
This document is a follow up to the UNHCR Cash Assistance and COVID – 19 Emerging Field Practices and presents additional snapshots from the many innovative field practices on cash assistance in light of COVID-19. More than 65 UNHCR operations have now launched new cash initiatives and/or expanded existing cash assistance as an efficient means of getting assistance to people fast, empowering families to meet their basic needs, mitigating some of the negative socio-economic impacts of COVID-19. UNHCR works in partnership with the governments to complement their social protection response while pursuing collaborative cash arrangements with relevant partners in line with the UN Principals Common Cash Statement.
