Inclusive Cash for Work Programs: Building A Stronger, Safer Recovery for All

Cash-for-work programs are essential in the aftermath of a disaster, and they must be designed and implemented to take gender and protection considerations into account. 

Cash-for-work programs must be accessible to women, men and older girls and boys.
