The Shelter and Cash Working Group was started in 2015 to work on the preparation of the GSC position paper and to conduct the shelter/cash literature review. Since then – and with support from the GSC ECHO grant in 2017/18 – the CWG has worked on a number of priority areas under the banner of the ‘cash champions’ initiatives. These activities include;

  • Development of guidance
  • Development of capacity
  • Provision of technical and surge support
  • Coordination and representation in policy level discussions
