Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP)
The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) is a global partnership of humanitarian actors engaged in policy, practice and research within cash transfer programming (CTP). Formed of a community of practice including over 150 organisations and more than 5,000 individuals in the humanitarian sector, CaLP is based on learning, knowledge sharing, networking and coordination around the appropriate and timely use of CTP in humanitarian response.
CaLP believes that when appropriately incorporated into humanitarian response planning that includes access to goods and services, CTP presents opportunities for effective and efficient programming to meet the needs of people and communities affected by crises. With the number, scale and complexity of humanitarian crises increasing, CaLP acts as a catalyst for positive transformation within the sector.
Their vision is that humanitarian assistance creates the greatest value, choice and dignity for people in crisis.
Their Mission is to radically increase the scale and quality of cash transfer programming as a tool for humanitarian assistance.
What they do
CaLP is the global partnership for cash transfer programming in humanitarian assistance. They are a catalyst for accelerating change. They work with individual organisations to help them increase the scale and quality of cash programming. And they bring organisations together to address the most pressing collective issues for cash. Since their founding in 2005, CaLP has been at the forefront of promoting and improving cash transfer programming across the humanitarian sector.
Developments in Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) cut across a number of diverse thematic areas.
- Markets in Humanitarian response
- Sector-specific and multi-sector CTP
- Gender, Protection and CTP
- Digital Payments and New Technologies in CTP
- Humanitarian CTP and Social Protection
- Operational delivery of CTP
On an annual basis, CaLP focuses on a specific number of priority topics within these thematic areas, identified with its members. These priority topics cut across technical and policy work, and will be embedded in CaLP’s capacity building content and CaLP’s support to coordination as relevant. See more
