Protection in Cash-based Interventions Course


Cash-based interventions (CBIs) have become an essential part of humanitarian response to crisis and are gaining recognition for their potential to provide dignified, market-based, timely and flexible assistance to affected communities in camp and out-of-camp settings. Recognition for and the application of protection in CBIs is an essential aspect of this frontier. It is critical that humanitarian agencies mainstream protection in CBIs and for agency staff to be knowledgeable about protection in response analysis when considering and implementing CBIs across sectors.

Ensuring protection mainstreaming in CBIs should not only reduce the risks faced, but enhance the benefits of humanitarian interventions for affected communities.
