Background and Rationale

Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) refers to programmes where cash or vouchers for goods or services are provided to affected populations. It’s an approach that consists of linkages, capacities, incentives and relationships to encourage effective market recovery. CTP can be done for emergency response, early recovery and long-term development.

Community World Service Asia is inviting applicants to a 3 day workshop on “Cash Transfer Programming”. Those who are interested to learn more about cash and voucher assistance in humanitarian settings must join. The goal of this workshop is to build and strengthen the capacity of aid workers in Cash Transfer Programming so that they can be more efficient and effective in addressing most pressing needs in the humanitarian context by utilising best practices, relevant tools & standards.

Aims & Objectives:

This three day workshop aims to introduce & enhance the capacity of participants to consider Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) in assessments and responses to emergencies. At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Define key CTP terms and concepts,
  • Describe the stages in the CTP process,
  • Describe additional information needed to assess the feasibility of using CTP,
  • Link the need for market analysis as a critical factor in planning interventions,
  • List issues related to designing and implementing cash transfer interventions,
  • Describe key issues when monitoring prices and social issues,
  • Consider what to include in the contingency planning process and preparedness activities in order to be ready for a timely CTP emergency response.
