Payments in hard-to-reach places: Recommendations, tools and leverages for implementing organisations
Hard-to-reach areas are not as served by cash and voucher assistance (CVA) because risks are greater and therefore the cost of implementation is higher as well. This results in a greater disparity between need and response than is seen in easier to access regions and means limited humanitarian resources may be more effectively deployed.
This research will build upon CALP’s 2022 “Coup de projecteur sur le Sahel et l’Afrique du Centre” (only available in French) and will support organisations in their aim to deliver CVA in hard-to-reach areas by outlining and assessing the general payment options that exist in the region. Whilst this work will focus on payment, it will also signpost to other work which explains how to implement other CVA programme steps in hard-to-reach areas.
