Assessment of Financial Service Providers - CVA in Yemen

Yemen has been witnessing conflict since 2015 and has become the world’s largest man-made food security crisis, leaving half the population in acute food insecurity. According to the June-December 2020  Humanitarian Response Plan Extension (HRP), 24.3 million people (approximately 80% of the population) needed some  form of humanitarian and protection assistance. In this dire context, Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) is a critical part of the humanitarian response in Yemen. Previous assessments shed light on CVA, particularly on delivery through agents. However, these  assessments lacked a comparative overview of CVA delivery mechanisms, as they did not cover opportunities, challenges and mitigation measures per CVA delivery mechanism.
