Economic strengthening programmes such as cash transfers are increasingly part of humanitarian response. They give households more financial flexibility and can have positive results for children, including on nutrition, health, or education. Identified as a knowledge gap area at the joint annual Education Cluster-Child Protection Working Group meeting in Geneva in October 2013, both groups collaborated on a compendium of evidence and guidance on Economic Strengthening for Child Protection & Education in Emergencies. The document is intended for use by child protection and education coordination teams and actors in the field. It was presented this Thursday at the 2014 annual CPWG meeting by Lisa Zimmermann, who authored the compendium during her summer internship with the Global Education Cluster and the CPWG.
