HLA WORKSHOP: CASH OPERATIONS IN HUMANITARIAN LOGISTICS

Henley Rooms | Wednesday 4 December 2019 | Spaced are limited, please apply here for this session.

Overview

The question being asked nowadays is “Why Not Cash”   While in some situations in-kind aid is the quickest to get close to the beneficiaries needs, where circumstances allow cash transfer programmes are desirable for giving dignity to people who have been affected by disasters, and provide a sense of ownership and control in a time of crisis.  They channel money into local markets, which are impacted by crises, and shift the power from larger wholesalers or manufacturers to local retailers and can stimulate local employment by kick-starting essential services. Cash transfer creates an opportunity to build women’s economic empowerment, lead to reduction of gender based violence and facilitate women’s leadership.  They also enable people to get the support they need faster, because it cuts down on transportation time of goods.

This workshop will therefore look at the circumstances for moving from in-kind aid to a cash transfer system and the mechanisms required for making the change. In partnership with LLA (Logistics Learning Alliance) and facilitated by Peter Jones (of LLA).

  • Why Cash?
  • Where can cash interventions occur in the supply chain
  • Cash transfer programmes for beneficiaries -market assessments
  • Putting cash transfer programmes into action.
