The toolbox is the main supporting documentation on CVA in the 2018 Sphere Handbook

It can be used across CVA modality, context and outcomes (both sectoral and multi-sectoral). Where they exist, sector specific guidelines and tools have been included.

Who is it for?

  • Programme managers who want to design and implement programmes using the best guidance and tools available
  • Cash working groups who want to set standards for a response
  • Agencies who want to collaborate around a shared set of standards
  • Donors who want to assess the quality of proposals and funded programmes

How was it developed?

The toolbox was developed by the CALP Network and its members based on the best available guidance across organisations. The content was curated and validated using a systematic selection protocol. The toolbox will be updated annually. New guidelines and tools will be reviewed according to the established curation process. To propose resources for consideration contact:

Disclaimer: This is not an exhaustive guide on quality programming in general. This toolbox focuses on the quality of CVA at programme level, irrespective of organisation or operational model. The inclusion of new guidelines and tools will be considered on an ongoing basis, in line with the existing selection protocol.

This toolbox was developed by Key Aid Consulting, commissioned and guided by the CALP Network
