CEA and Cash

The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement often uses humanitarian cash assistance to help people affected by a crisis. It is essential that we apply participatory approaches to our work, to make sure that we meet people’s needs and deliver cash according to the preferences of the communities we work with. If you wish to access information, tools, data, evidence and learning specific to humanitarian cash assistance visit cash-hub.org or access the online cash community of the Movement to discuss cash related topics and connect with cash practitioners of the Movement.
