Dignifying, diverse and desires: Cash and vouchers as humanitarian assistance for migrants
Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) is an effective, efficient and transparent way of providing humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable. It ensures people have the freedom, dignity and independence to decide on their own recovery. But challenges around acceptance and delivery remain when it comes to providing CVA to migrants.
This report reviews how the IFRC has used CVA to assist migrants, offering diverse examples from many different National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. It also analyses the opportunities, barriers and risks to providing CVA in migratory contexts.
