Armenia Cash Transfer Standard Operating Procedures to support Government-led cash based programmes

25 September 2021 — By UNICEF Armenia

The sub-working group on humanitarian cash transfer programming, within the UN Coordination Steering Group, gathers more than 20 organizations – comprising UN agencies, humanitarian NGOs and development partners. The group is working together to develop common and aligned approaches to cash-based interventions to provide support to families affected by the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

In 2020-2021, the Government of Armenia has rolled out a number of cash assistance programmes, which are regulated by dedicated Government Decrees. Further cash support programmes may be rolled out by the Government based on targeted needs and/or specific groups of displaced populations.

The Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on supporting Government-led cash assistance programmes present a step-by-step reference guide for all partners and includes agreed modalities of support with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MoLSA) and the Cash Coordination sub-working group members.
