Looking into 2020: short overview on global clusters, CVA and the CALP Network
Overview as 2020 begins:
• Significant progress and commitment from all global clusters on integration of CVA into their work.
• Significant interest in different regions and by some donors on sector-specific CVA.
• Challenges that remain:
o Dialogue: 1) Ensuring CVA specialists understand sector specificities and successfully bank on the technical expertise emanating from the sectors/clusters; 2) Ensuring sector specialists are included in conversations on CVA, can actively contribute, and feel that their sector concerns/priorities are being addressed;
o Different needs: not all clusters are at the same level in CVA (capacity, evidence, resources). Those for which it is still quite emergent (Health, Nutrition) are doing great work to move forward.
