CILT Awards in Cash Transfer Programming

In recent years, Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) has emerged as one of the most significant innovations in international humanitarian assistance. By 2015, two billion dollars was spent on cash and vouchers and the global trend is increasing. The benefits of CTP have been shown to cut across multiple sectors to address women’s empowerment, food security, emissions reduction, education and healthcare. While CTP is widely recognised to be an essential tool to enhance humanitarian responses, it is not a cure for all problems.

Supply Chain Managers and Logisticians have a key role to play in both establishing these mechanisms and also in assessing the robustness of the local supply chain to support this modality.  It was felt by the Certification Advisory Group that the CHL and CHSCM programmes should reflect this content.

Designed for those who need to have a greater understanding of how to implement Cash Transfer programmes and for Graduates of the Certification in Logistics or Supply Chain Management programmes, for more information on these short courses please follow the links below.
