SDC online platform on cash transfers

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) has launched an information platform on cash transfer projects in humanitarian aid. The aim of this platform is to share experiences from, to provide management instruments for, and to allow networking among practitioners concerned with Cash Transfer Projects.

It includes the newly revised SDC Cash Workbook for practitioners, suitable for beginners to senior staff working on Cash Transfer Projects, both at headquarters and project level.

The 'Club of Cash Transfer Practitioners' allows experienced individuals to offer their names to institutions searching for experts, while an online blog allows practitioners to share information informally and raise questions or concerns.

The site is provided by Project Team CASH, a knowledge management body within the Humanitarian Aid Depart-ment of SDC. Visit the website at www.sdc-cashprojects.ch
