Sudan – Gedaref Joint Cash Risk assessment
Since the crisis in the Tigray region of Ethiopia in November 2020 over 60,000 people have sought refuge in neighbouring Sudan and were mostly accommodated in camps re-established in Gedaref State. Cash is has been utilised as a response modality and is being considered further by several agencies. This report, led by UNICEF on behalf of the sub-national Cash Working Group (CGW) in Gedaref, is the product of a ten-day inter agency initiative assessing the risks that any new or continued cash-based initiative would need to consider before and during implementation. The main focus has been on GBV/PSEA risks; the tools used were reflective of this as are the recommendations. Over 100 people were consulted over two days by a multi sectoral, inter agency team of ten UN and INGO staff. This report has been generated within a week of the assessment ending in order to quickly inform any programme design and implementation to ensure risks are taken into account.
