What we do
- CashCap offers the humanitarian and development community independent experts to support cash and market-based assistance in crises.
- We deploy the right expertise to the right place at the right time. The experts provide support on technical issues, coordination and capacity development across all response phases and build bridges between the humanitarian and development sectors (NEXUS).
- This leads to more coordinated, effective, and harmonised support to people in need, and helps governments and aid agencies tailor their assistance to the context.
- Our work links global discussions, such as the Grand Bargain and Global Framework for Cash, with field practitioners across sectors, contributing to a more holistic response at country, regional, or global levels.
