Guide for Protection in Cash based Interventions - UNHCR

This guide identifies minimum necessary information and key resources needed to help humanitarian practitioners ensure that protection risks and benefits are considered and monitored throughout the cash-based interventions (CBI) program cycle, using a community-based approach and participatory methods as much as possible. It can help to inform CBI in any program context: protection mainstreaming into sectoral programs such as nutrition or shelter with a voucher component, joint programs such as protection and livelihoods, and protection programs, such as child protection programs that include cash transfers to caretakers.

The Guide is aimed at program managers and technical experts across all areas or sectors of humanitarian response who use CBI in their programs, including protection experts.
