Evidence on the Use of Cash and Voucher Assistance to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence in Humanitarian Settings


Until now there has been limited evidence on the impact of cash and voucher assistance (CVA) on the prevention of and response to gender-based violence (GBV) in humanitarian settings. To bridge gaps in evidence and to complement its existing guidance and tools on CVA-integrated GBV programming, the Women’s Refugee Commission and its global partners are generating evidence on the use of cash assistance integrated within gender-based violence (GBV) case management to support survivors’ recovery from violence.

Evidence generated so far includes the following contexts: Colombia, Ecuador, and northwest Syria. This is shared below, alongside documentation of operational learning and recommendations and selected program tools from the program models evaluated.
