Cash Transfer Programming in Urban Emergencies – A Toolkit for Practitioners

Cash Transfer Programming in Urban Emergencies – A Toolkit for Practitioners

Purpose:

This toolkit brings together the collective knowledge of best practices, key issues in programming, and adaptations of cash transfer programme methodologies for urban settings. It is also the aim of this toolkit to promote a variety of options for implementation that reflect the multisectoral and multi-disciplinary nature of cash transfer programmes. All tools described in this toolkit are adapted from real urban projects, from a variety of organisations and contexts.

Overview:

Some urban-specific lessons learnt include:

  • Gender
  • Access barriers
  • Vendors
  • Cash-for-Work
  • Waiting times
  • Project outcomes
  • Verification
  • Urban purchasing behaviours
  • Organisational capacity for cash
  • Harmonisation of rates
  • Calculate household income and expenses

The toolkit covers discussions on:

  • Assessments in Urban Areas
  • Response Analysis for Urban Emergencies
  • Targeting and Verification in Urban Environments
  • Implementation of Cash Transfer Programmes in Urban Disasters
  • Fraud and Corruption Prevention in Urban Settings
  • Monitoring and Evaluation for Urban Cash Programmes

Cash transfer programming engaging National Society leadership – Guidance and materials to support internal advocacy

Cash transfer programming engaging National Society leadership – Guidance and materials to support internal advocacy

Purpose:

This guidance provides the materials required to run an awareness session (internal advocacy) for senior representatives of a National Society on the nature of cash transfer programming, its challenges and benefits. National Societies work in different contexts and as such the materials will need to be adapted to suit the specific purpose.

With the aim to provide the resources needed to analyse the barriers to the use of cash transfers within the National Society, and to use these to plan and facilitate a meeting or workshop with its leadership to explore opportunities and constraints associated with cash transfer programming, and thus promote the consideration of cash transfers as part of a response option analysis process.

This guide is also equipped with a powerpoint presentation (in the same link below as the guidelines), discussing about:

  • What is CTP?
  • Why some National Societies choose CTP
  • Approaches to CTP
  • Transfer modalities
  • Mapping RC/RC CTP
  • Trends in CTP
  • Response option analysis (how to determine what programmatic approach is the most appropriate)

 

Overview:

The process could be summarized below:

  • Step 1: Situation analysis
  • Step 2: Defining the purpose of our intervention
  • Step 3: Identifying the target audience
  • Step 4: Selecting the advocates
  • Step 5: Developing the approach
  • Step 6: Finding and selecting appropriate evidence
  • Step 7: Planning the meeting
  • Step 8: Holding the meeting
  • Step 9: Follow-up

 

Usage: Guidance for internal advocacy implementation

Cash transfer programming: Guidelines for mainstreaming and preparedness

Cash transfer programming: Guidelines for mainstreaming and preparedness

Purpose:

The purpose of this guidance is to support National Societies in demonstrating improved capacity and operational readiness to provide scalable and timely emergency cash transfer programming (CTP). This will be achieved when a National Society has trained and experienced staff and volunteers who are familiar with its tools and procedures, use them efficiently, and contribute to their adaptation and improvement. Some of the desirable outcomes would be:

  • A National Society has a CTP preparedness plan of action (PoA) that is properly budgeted, resourced, and has clear activities and outputs.
  • A National Society achieves the specific outputs planned in their PoA. These outputs are tailored to address each National Society’s unique opportunities and barriers, to be operationally ready to provide scalable emergency CTP.
  • The National Society has a solid database of CTP trained and experienced staff and volunteers at headquarter and branch levels.
  • CTP standard operating procedures (SOPs), systems and procedures are agreed, documented and widely available for all, training has been provided in their use and they are updated periodically or after each response, based on lessons learned.
  • A National Society CTP toolkit has been developed, integrated with existing tools and shared with staff and volunteers (and with other humanitarian partners, in order to widen their knowledge, understanding and use). It is reviewed and updated as a result of ongoing preparedness and response actions.
  • CTP communications materials are developed and widely available for National Society staff and volunteers to use and adapt.
  • Learning from operations and responses is captured and procedures, tools and training materials are updated as necessary based on this learning.
  • National Society CTP responses are coordinated both internally within the Movement and externally with other actors.

 

Overview:

The process of CTP preparedness has a number of parallel aspects. To reflect this, this guidance is organized along four parallel tracks, each of which contributes to the operational readiness of the National Society. CTP mainstreaming and preparedness activities need to focus on all four tracks to develop operational readiness capacity, although prioritization of activities will depend on the National Society’s own unique profile. The four tracks are:

  • enabling systems for CTP preparedness
  • programme tools for CTP preparedness
  • resources and capacities for CTP preparedness
  • communication and coordination for CTP preparedness.

 

While each National Society will forge its own path to CTP operational readiness, if they follow common guidance and put in place similar components (as identified through the pilots and outlined in this guidance) it will then be easier for representatives of different Movement actors to work effectively together in times of an international response.

Exploring mobile money transfers through private partnerships in Bangladesh – CTP case study

Exploring mobile money transfers through private partnerships in Bangladesh – CTP case study

Purpose:

This case study extracts the lessons learned of implementing a mobile money transfer as a delivery mechanism in the context Bangladesh and the process of engaging with the private sector. Innovation and new technologies are continuously identified and explored as ways to improve CTP (Cash Transfer Programming) which creates exciting opportunities to partner with the private sector.

Overview:

The case study highlights the programme description, challenges and lessons learned, and key messages on mobile money transfers. The key messages on mobile money transfers include:

  • Private sectors are businesses, so to attract the private sector to partner with us, we must offer something of clear value.
  • Our operating environments are not the same with key differences in implementation practices.
  • Our beneficiaries, their clients (this highlights the difference of perspective to take into consideration).
  • Cashing-out must be among the mobile financial services offered.
  • National regulations and policies are constantly changing.
  • Identify the bottlenecks for scaling up.
  • Humanitarian organisations are in a strong position to negotiate.
