Cash and Voucher Assistance for Education in Emergencies
Synthesis Report and Guidelines
GEC's first publication unpacks the potential of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) in responding to the education needs of children living in humanitarian emergencies.
The study, grounded on a comprehensive desk review as well as country case studies documenting lessons and experiences from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq and Somalia, examined three key questions:
- When is CVA the best modality to deliver EiE projects, and when is a combination of modalities preferable?
- What elements need to be taken into account when calculating the education-related component of Multipurpose Cash Transfers (MPC) intended to meet basic needs?
- How are education-related costs calculated to be included in the Minimum Expenditure Basket (MEB), depending on the context?
