Videos on Cash and Voucher Programming from Logistics Cluster
Market-based interventions is a hot topic in emergency response. The Logistics Cluster has produced several videos to help to explain the key concepts behind cash, voucher and market assistance. Cash and voucher programming is rapidly becoming a modality of choice for humanitarian programmes engaged in market strengthening activities to aid recovery, and stimulate trade to support affected populations, and so these videos provide a good grounding on the following topics:
- Strengthening Markets in Crisis: all around the world, people depend on markets for their lives and livelihoods. But what happens to these markets when an emergency occurs?
- Supply chains: how do supply chains play a critical role in cash and markets based humanitarian programmes?
- Multiplier effects: when emergency cash transfers are injected into markets, multiplier effects can yield long-term development and enable crisis-affected communities to rebuild their livelihoods.
