Donor Cash Forum: Humanitarian Cash Transfers in the Response to COVID-19
Humanitarian cash transfers have a critical, complementary role to play in the response to COVID-19, supporting continuity and safety in the delivery of humanitarian assistance. The most vulnerable will likely be hardest hit by the economic consequences of the pandemic and cash can help meet basic needs as incomes fall. Cash provides the opportunity for coherent, efficient and effective assistance to those who need it most.
Prepared by the Donor Cash Forum, including the EU (DG ECHO), Denmark, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, this paper is intended to serve as a basis for engagement with our partners on how they deliver cash programmes and alignment of our funding and engagement, where appropriate.
