Establishing a Cash Working Group and GBV Sub-Cluster task force: NW Syria Case Study
The case study was created with the inputs of two Cash Working Group leads and the GBV Turkey cross-border Sub-Cluster leads in the Northwest Syria response. The case study demonstrates an example of meaningful linking of gender-based violence response and cash and voucher assistance.
As Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) becomes increasingly relevant in responding to gender-based violence (GBV), so does the need to operationalise the use of the modalities. In Northwest Syria, the Cash Working Group and the GBV Sub-Cluster established a task force to build bridges between GBV and CVA actors. The task force has focused on strengthening partner capacities to enable systematic referrals from GBV case management to CVA to transition GBV survivors from relief to recovery.
