Guidance Brief. How to incorporate cash and voucher assistance into a nutrition response
There is a growing recognition that Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA), i.e. the provision of cash transfers and vouchers to targeted beneficiaries, can contribute to improving maternal and child nutrition by impacting on the underlying determinants
of adequate nutrition.
The main purpose of this Guidance Brief is to provide the nutrition sector generic guidance to more routinely consider and, if appropriate, use cash and voucher modalities when responding to emergencies, ultimately enabling the sector to better address the nutritional needs of vulnerable populations.
The target audience of this document are nutrition practitioners, be they nutrition cluster/sector coordination teams or nutrition programme staff.
