Cash Working Group Strategy Paper for South Sudan 2019-2020, 1st Edition – July 2019
The Cash Working Group Group South Sudan (hereby referred as CWG in the document) was officially established in 2015 and has been recognized as the medium for coordination, communication, information sharing, technical discussions, as well as capacity building of cash actors. This platform also provides an opportunity to various Cash Transfer Programming actors to showcase their work, share issues for technical discussions, best practices and lessons learnt. After being inactive for some time after the 2016 crisis, the CWG was re-invigorated in the middle of 2017.
Formerly the CWG was hosted by the Food Security Cluster, however, after the recommendations from ICWG retreat in 2019, the working group became part of the Inter Cluster Working Group (ICWG) enablers matrix 1 and is recognized as the technical advisory body to the ICWG members This is a special matrix of various cluster sub-groups and cross cutting programme programme elements developed by ICWG to improve the functionality and effectiveness of ICWG at national and sub-national level. The idea of this matrix is to identify the main sub-working groups which can work together with ICWG. This list includes CWG as well.
