Integrating Cash Assistance into GBV Case Management: Lebanon

As part of the humanitarian response in Lebanon, UNFPA Lebanon piloted the integration of cash assistance within Gender-based violence (GBV) case management services. UNFPA implemented three different types of cash assistance: one-off emergency cash assistance, recurrent cash assistance, and cash for transport. These forms of cash assistance were integrated into comprehensive GBV services offered by UNFPA and its implementing partners, with a goal of improving protection outcomes for GBV survivors and mitigating individuals’ risk of GBV. Overall, the integration of cash assistance within GBV case management proved to have a positive impact both on mitigating further risk of GBV and on supporting the access to a comprehensive package of GBV services aimed at improving resilience and wellbeing of survivors and individuals at risk.
