HNO and HRP Process – CVA quality checklist
The use of Cash and and Voucher Assistance Assistance (CVA) has increased considerably in the past years, from 10.6 per cent of international humanitarian assistance in 2016 to 19 per cent in 2020. Today, CVA is widely recognized as a more flexible and dignified modality for providing humanitarian assistance and is also the modality preferred by many recipients. CVA cuts across sectors and thus supports the aim of the humanitarian programme cycle (HPC) to cooperate, achieve collective results and improve to affected populations.
CVA for EiE helps to remove economic barriers that households and children face in their access to education, leading to increased enrolment/ attendance and decreased drop-out rates. Education Clusters should evaluate the relevance, appropriateness, and feasibility of CVA, in order to achieve EiE specific specific outcomes. The results and information from the HNO (analysis) will allow to assess response options and to select the most suitable type of intervention (cash, voucher or in-kind) in the HRP (response) while ensuring the linkages between the Education cluster chapters of the HNO and the HRP.
