Q&A from the CaLP Webinar: Lessons on the use of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) for the Caribbean Atlantic hurricane season

Q&A from the CaLP Webinar: Lessons on the use of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) for the Caribbean Atlantic hurricane season

Key messages:

  • Given the enabling infrastructure, markets, local capacities and interest of key stakeholders, the
    Caribbean region offers significant opportunities to scale up CVA.
  • International humanitarian actors supporting the response need to take a very localised approach
    due to the small island context, the generally strong roles of government and local organisations in
    response (and varying government position vis-à-vis CVA), diverse cultural influences and the
    challenges of reaching undocumented and other marginalised populations.
  • Effective CVA as an emergency response tool and/or as part of shock-responsive social protection
    systems require significant investments in preparedness.
