Good Practices Brochure: Integrating Gender into Cash and Voucher Assistance in Humanitarian Settings

Authors/editor(s): The Asia-Pacific Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group

A new guideline “Cash & Voucher Assistance and Gender-Based Violence Compendium: Practical Guidance for Humanitarian Practitioner” is to be finalized by May 2019. The guidance was developed through the efforts of 15 NGO and UN organizations who contributed expertise in the inception, design and review of the document. The process was led and was funded through support from CARE USA and prepared by an independent consultant, Joanna Friedman, on behalf of CARE USA and the CVA and GBV Guidelines Reference Group.

The purpose of the Compendium is to assist humanitarian actors and crisis- and conflict-affected communities to: integrate Gender-Based Violence (GBV) risk mitigation and in some cases GBV prevention into Cash & Voucher Assistance (CVA) interventions; and integrate CVA into GBV prevention and response when appropriate.

This Good Practices brochure was produced by the Asia-Pacific Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group, co-chaired by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), OCHA, and UN Women.
