OVERVIEW

The ECWG leads crisis-specific initiatives related to CVA, develops suggested transfer values based on local market assessments, ensures uniformity of standards, and provides technical and strategic guidance to implementing partners. The ECWG works with clusters and advocates a cash-first modality where suitable to address the needs of crisis affected areas. Coordination efforts are aligned with clusters, the Collaborative Cash Delivery (CCD) Network, sub-national cash working groups, the Refugee Cash Task Force, the Agency for Refugee and Returnee Affairs (ARRA).
