Glossary of Terminology for Cash and Voucher Assistance

The glossary is also available as an interactive online resource.

April 2023 — By CALP Network

First published in 2011, the CALP Glossary is designed to facilitate a common understanding and harmonized use of terms and definitions for cash and voucher assistance (CVA). 

It should be noted that these definitions apply to the use of CVA in humanitarian programming and may not reflect how some terms are understood in other contexts or by other audiences. 

The glossary, last updated in 2023, is available as a PDF (see above), and also in an online interactive format in Arabic, English, French and Spanish.

It is also available in German and Portuguese but in a PDF format only.
