The use of cash has undergone significant changes at the field level with the uptake of mulit‐purpose‐cash grants (MPGs). In particular the formation of diverse technical cash working groups (CWGs) raises questions around how the clusters and its partners can provide technical and strategic support to the use of cash modalities in humanitarian response and what structures are needed to facilitate these outcomes. In early 2017, the TWiG convened a first intersectoral meeting in Geneva aiming at strengthening the dialogue around cash coordination, with participation of four other global clusters (health, nutrition, protection and shelter).
Because significant progress has been made through various initiatives since then, the GWC TWiG has decided to invite to this ‘Cash in Markets – Learning Event’, hosted by the German WASH Network in Berlin in January 2018 with the kind support of the German Federal Foreign Office. Participants included humanitarian cash and markets, WASH, as well as shelter experts from several INGOs, UN agencies, think tanks, global clusters as well as donor agencies.
