Linking CVA and Social Protection in the MENA Region – Cribsheet

Building linkages between humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and social protection (SP) has become an increasingly prominent topic over the past five years and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region has been at the centre of this evolution. The objective of this resource set (the cribsheet and 3, soon to be 6, regional case studies) is to ensure that CaLP trainers and course participants in MENA (and elsewhere) have access to the most significant and relevant examples from the region on linking SP and humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA). The resources cover Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Turkey and Yemen. The crib sheet summarises the main activities (programmes, assessments and analyses, events and policy and coordination initiatives) of interest, highlighting key lessons learned, and signposting to related documentation.
