The Role of Logistics/Supply Chain in Cash & Voucher Assistance (CVA) Programming
Food security and livelihood programs are critical emergency response interventions to protect lives and livelihoods. Increasingly cash and voucher assistance (CVA) is provided to enable vulnerable families to purchase the items they need and prefer from local markets, giving the dignity of choice and promoting local market revitalization.
As CVA in humanitarian assistance has grown significantly in recent years, skills and experience rest predominantly with program staff. But lessons learned over time have shown that the supply chain funtion plays a critical role in timely and quality CVA programming. To improve CVA programming, organizations need to invest in capacity building of their logistics and supply chain staff to help them undertake their role in CVA.
As the first step in this capacity building, TOPS is organizing this webinar to introduce partner supply chain staff to their role in CVA.
