Speaker presentations from the CALP Network’s 14 July 2020 webinar on: Peril or pitfalls?: Emerging practices on remote registration and verification in the COVID-19 response

Remote CVA programming has been highlighted as a key challenge for the community of practice in scaling up CVA to mitigate and address the widespread economic impacts of COVID-19. Targeting, registering and verifying new recipients as programming expands is a particular challenge for humanitarian actors whose added value is often their knowledge and relationships at the community level. While there is quality guidance, such as the NRC guidelines on remote CVA, there is less documented practice in this area, particularly in a pandemic context. Innovations are emerging from the CALP Network practices and this webinar seeks to bring together humanitarian and private sector actors to identify solutions to respond to the unprecedented global needs.
