Cash Learning Partnership – CaLP
This section provides an overview of the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) by presenting the CaLP network and explaining how to use in the best way all available resources that the CaLP offers.
The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) originated from the will to gather lessons learnt from the emergency response to the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2005.
Today, CaLP is composed of more than 30 organisations including INGOs, donor agencies and private sector actors. Those organisations came together to support capacity building, advocacy, research and information sharing as a way to promote cash transfer programming as an effective tool to deliver aid in times of crisis.

By acting as a catalyst for change in attitude and practice the CaLP will ensure that CTP is routinely considered as a scalable component of quality, timely and appropriate preparedness , emergency response and early recovery.
CaLP will work to contribute to the achievement of its overall goal by implementing activities across four main outcomes.
Humanitarian actors have developed institutional capacity to design, implement, monitor, evaluate and coordinate quality and appropriate CTPs, including multi-purpose / multi-sectoral CTPs.
Humanitarian actors utilise operational research as an evidence base to design, implement, monitor, evaluate and coordinate CTP.
Leadership and coordination structures for the incorporation of CTP in humanitarian action are clear and consider preparedness, accountability. Mechanisms and operational partnerships to enhance the rapid adoption of CTP in the early stages of emergency response.
Humanitarian actors collaborate with non-humanitarian actors to ensure CTP builds on and compliments wider preparedness and recovery approaches.
The CaLP received funded by DG ECHO via the Enhanced Response Capacity funds. ECHO supports all pillars of CaLP’s work: capacity building, evidence gathering and research, and communications and advocacy.
ECHO encourages all its partners to benefit from the services, training, and material proposed by CaLP. This includes envisaging in their actions involving cash and voucher transfer, the necessary resources to benefit from CaLP assistance in enhancing the capacity of the partners staff involved in the action.
