In this episode of Sustainability Unwrapped we explore cash and voucher assistance (CVA), an increasingly popular response in humanitarian assistance, and its relationship to the environment. How can environmental impact be considered in the CVA programs without forgetting the social benefits and burdening the recipients of assistance? Let’s find out.


In humanitarian assistance, an increasingly popular response is cash and voucher assistance (CVA). CVA refers to “the provision of cash transfers or vouchers given to individuals, household or community recipients”1. Just from 2015 to 2020, the use of CVA as a humanitarian response more than doubled, making it an important element of the humanitarian response programs2.
