Overview: "Cash and voucher assistance (CVA) for education in emergencies removes economic barriers preventing crisis affected children from accessing education, thereby leading to prevention of drop-outs, increased enrolment and attendance. When multiple economic, protection, cultural and education service-related barriers to education need to be addressed, CVA for EiE should be delivered in integration with interventions addressing those barriers that are not economic in nature. The use of CVA for EiE has been limited, mainly due to lack of understanding of current practices". The report details the key take-aways related to needs assessment, responses option analysis, targeting, conditionality's, monitoring, calculating the education component of the MEB, calculating the transfer value, timing, duration, and frequency, and sustainability.
