Meeting report and slides: Sept 2021 cash coordination meeting for humanitarian leaders
In September 2021, senior leaders gathered to discuss progress since the submission of the Call for Action, consider the proposed formation of a cash caucus and hear about some coordination options.
Donors made their views clear and 99% of meeting attendees polled wanted their organisation to continue engaging with the process.
The meeting was convened by USAID and the CALP Network, who both act as co-facilitators of the Tackling Political Blockages sub-workstream within the Grand Bargain.
The way that cash is coordinated is a long-standing issue within humanitarian response, with organisations involved in CVA having recently ramped up their efforts to seek predictable and accountable coordination arrangements.
