Mitigating Risks of Abuse of Power in Cash Assistance – Workshop Nairobi, Kenya
UNHCR and WFP are implementing a joint project to identify and mitigate risks of abuse of power by private sector service providers in the delivery
of cash assistance to vulnerable populations. The workshop, held in Nairobi on 10-11 December 2018, followed visits to the first two pilot countries, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Cameroon. It aimed to build further on initial takeaways, share existing tools, guidance and initiatives and discuss potential future solutions to be adopted by various stakeholders across the public, humanitarian and the private sectors in the mitigation of these risks.
