Cash Working Group (Last updated on: 25 May 2021)
The Uganda Cash Working Group was established in December 2016 to support the humanitarian community in Uganda in responding to the affected 1.4 million refugee population. It is a community of practice of humanitarian actors that operates from the Humanitarian approach to cash coordination. It includes both technical functions that focus on process; such as sharing lessons learnt, harmonising approaches to delivering cash, developing guidelines and strategic or functions that focus more on results and impact; such as avoiding gaps and duplications, advocacy to promote appropriate cash and voucher assistance and influence policy.
The CWG is an inclusive platform for humanitarian actors responding to the situation in Uganda. The group is open to the cash Community of Practice, which includes, but not limited to, International and National NGOs, UN Agencies, donors, community based organisations, financial service providers and relevant government agencies that are involved in the humanitarian response.
