The scale-up of Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) is catalysing rapid change in the humanitarian sector: new operational models, changing use of technology, evolving partnerships with private sector actors, and stronger links between humanitarian assistance and other types of financial flows. These changes have implications for the future roles of humanitarian actors and for the ways they plan and deliver programmes to optimize results for people affected by crisis. This report is intended to support actors to think through how opportunities and challenges may evolve, and how they can better prepare to deliver effective assistance in future.
