Independent review of CashCap support to the Rohingya crisis, Bangladesh 2017-2019
CashCap is an inter-agency project, managed by NORCAP, the Norwegian Refugee Council’s global provider of expertise to the humanitarian, development and peacebuilding sectors. CashCap has been deploying senior experts to provide inter-agency support with the aim of increasing the use and effectiveness of cash and markets programming in crisis contexts since 2016.
In early October 2017, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) requested support from CashCap with the initial aim of establishing a platform for the coordination of cash-based interventions (CBI) for the Rohingya refugee population following a large-scale exodus of this vulnerable group from Myanmar into Bangladesh.
Since then, CashCap has deployed three experts with the aim of putting in place and maintaining CBI coordination mechanisms; providing technical and capacity building support; and pursuing CBI-focused advocacy.
