What does Gender-Sensitive Cash and Voucher Assistance Look Like?

14 October 2019 — By CARE

CARE commissioned a study on gender-sensitive CVA from its own project participants and took place in Haiti, Niger, Jordan, Malawi and the Philippines.

The study aimed at understanding the:
-Extent to which women, men, boys, and girls have been involved in the design of CVA and the implications of
this involvement.

-Potential for CVA to foster positive and sustainable gender roles and relations that contribute to gender equity.

-Gender-related barriers and risks associated with collecting and receiving CVA including social and cultural attitudes and protection risks.

The report defines gender-sensitive cash and voucher assistance and makes recommendations on how to secure the approach in different phases of the program cycle.
