Community Engagement and Accountability (CEA) for Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) during COVID-19

CVA can be an empowering mode of assistance as it can help to put decision making power in the hands of communities, so that they can recover from crisis with dignity. This is only possible when we ensure the participation and engagement of communities throughout the programme cycle. This tip sheet provides practical actions you can take before, during and after a Cash and Voucher Assistance programme to help integrate CEA principles. The checklist is on the first and second page, and additional guidance is on the following pages if you need help to implement the actions.
