The purpose of this cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and gender-based violence (GBV) compendium is to assist humanitarian actors and crisis- and conflict-affected communities to:
- integrate GBV risk mitigation into CVA interventions;
- integrate GBV prevention into multi-sector programming using CVA when appropriate; and
- integrate CVA into GBV prevention and response when appropriate.
- The compendium highlights key considerations, ESSENTIAL ACTIONS , PROMISING PRACTICES and
LESSONS LEARNED to help humanitarian practitioners work with affected people and communities to identify and monitor GBV risks and mitigation measures throughout the programme cycle. The compendium gives examples of the potentially beneficial outcomes of using CVA alongside other assistance and services to contribute to preventing or responding to GBV.
