Unified Cash+ Framework of Bangladesh: For anticipatory action and response
This document presents a proposal for a harmonised inter-sectoral approach to cash+ (cash and other forms of support) in anticipation of rapid onset hazard events as well as the response phase. The formulations are based on the HCTT pre-crisis survey conducted in June 2023 and the workshop on the 22nd of June where the initial proposal was formulated.
The aim of this initial proposal is to be implemented and monitored with common monitoring and evaluation indicators used by all partners and all findings to be used in subsequent revisions of this document.
Agreement on a yearly revision schedule for this document, when the Minimum Expenditure Basket (MEB), transfer values, and sub-sectoral packages of mitigation support are updated based on the findings of the common monitoring and evaluation activities or, at minimum, harmonised post-distribution monitoring activities.
This approach described in this framework is based on the monsoon flood scenario for anticipatory actions, but the methodology applies to anticipatory actions for other fast-onset hazards.
