Child Protection and Cash and Voucher Assistance Tip Sheet

January 2024 — By Global Protection Cluster

This tip sheet includes key terminology and messages, a summary of the latest available evidence and various tips on strategy, programme design and cycle management in respect of using Cash & Voucher Assistance (CVA) as an assistance modality for Child Protection outcomes. A list of key related resources is provided.

The tip sheet was produced in close collaboration with Global Protection Cluster’s (GPC) Task Team on Cash for Protection (TTC4P), CP Area of Responsibility (AOR) and the Alliance Cash and Child Protection Task Force. It is intended for use by anyone engaged in Child Protection programming, with a particular though not exclusive focus on programmatic staff.

It considers only CVA for child protection outcomes, as opposed to CP-related considerations in other CVA programmes or other sectoral programming in Child Protection, unless it is considered relevant to the mitigating protection risks or enhancing protection benefits.
