Human Mobility, Locally Led Response and CVA: Case studies in Ecuador and Peru

Anticipated end date: 3 July 2024

Contact: Diego Prado

Context and justification

The studies carried out by CALP, People are on the move: Can the world of CVA keep up? Analysis of cash transfer programs in human mobility contexts in the Americas (2022) and on the Feasibility of a route-based approach for cash and voucher assistance in the Americas (2023), pose challenges for all actors involved in humanitarian assistance and open the space to investigate other scenarios.

Likewise, since the arrival of IMPACT, through its REACH initiative to the Americas in 2019, it has been committed to supporting and strengthening local capacities for information management.

This research proposes an analysis from the use of CVA in two ways. On the one hand, it seeks to expand knowledge about the potential CVA capabilities of local organizations to face emergency scenarios in the Americas. On the other hand, it seeks to make human mobility visible as an active situation present in the Americas that implies a series of modifications when using CVA.


  • Map the CVA capacities of local and national actors on the routes between Peru and Ecuador.
  • Evaluate the operation of the systemic human mobility and vulnerability framework: both in the conception of the programs, as in the identification of the population.
  • Understand and characterize the feasibility of a route-based approach to assistance in CVA on the routes between Peru and Ecuador led by local actors.
  • Offer recommendations for the design of effective localization strategies supported using CVA in human mobility contexts between Peru and Ecuador.
