Introductory Research on the Feasibility of Cash and Voucher Assistance in Rural Fiji
This report presents the findings of a study into the general feasibility of using Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) in responding to disasters in Fiji. The term “Cash and Voucher Assistance” or CVA, is used in the report in line with the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) definition, so it refers to programs where cash transfers or vouchers are provided directly to people not to the government.
This study is specifically interested in CVA in the context of humanitarian assistance. This type of assistance is also referred to in other documents as Cash Based Interventions, Cash Based Assistance and Cash Transfer Programming.
