Linking Cash and Voucher Assistance and Social Protection in forced displacement contexts

default_content

Higher numbers than ever before are forcibly displaced globally, for an average of 5 years, and a large proportion of humanitarian assistance, including Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA), is being provided in response to these needs. In these contexts:

  • What are the options and specific considerations for linking CVA with Social Protection (SP) to support forcibly displaced populations?
  • Do entry points differ based on the level of SP system maturity? If so, how?
  • What can be done, particularly as part of preparedness, to maximise these linkages?

Objectives:

  • Highlight the opportunities, challenges and key considerations for linking forcibly displaced populations to SP systems
  • Showcase Turkey as a successful example of aligning assistance for refugees and nationals
  • Debate the feasibility of replicating such linkages in different contexts considering political willingness, system maturity, and funding
  • Facilitate dialogue between humanitarian and SP stakeholders on this topic

Speakers:

Orhan Hacimehmet, Turkish Red Crescent

Nona Zicherman, UNICEF Turkey

Moderator:

Isabelle Pelly, Independent Consultant
