Environment and Disaster Management – Investigation of Environmental Issues in Cash Transfer Programming

Case Study

“Looking through¬†an environmental lens: Implications and opportunities associated with Cash Transfer Programming in humanitarian response” is a project led by the UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit, the Global Shelter Cluster (GSC) Environment community of Practice (ECoP), the Cash Working Group (CWG) and the London School of Economics (LSE). It explores the environment challenges created by humanitarian programmes that adopt cash transfer programming.

The students are researching the environmental implications and opportunities associated with CTP being used at a greater scale, specifically in shelter and settlement programs issues that must be considered in relation to humanitarian principles such as “do no harm” and “build back safer”.
