Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action

Reducing risk, promoting resilience and aiding recovery

#GenderCash Revolution Burundi Case Study: How can we reduce GBV risks in cash and voucher assistance?

Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) has become a valuable and increasingly utilized tool in humanitarian response in Burundi. CVA has been shown to contribute to the resilience of vulnerable populations, but in order to maximize its effectiveness, humanitarian actors should establish Gender Based Violence (GBV) risk prevention and mitigation measures. While the Burundi Humanitarian Country Team has declared CVA a priority, and eight sectoral objectives mention CVA in the 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan, it is critical that actors are able to identify GBV risks as well as good practices in terms of risk mitigation measures.
