Market and cash based interventions are becoming a central aspect of the humanitarian response, including for the WASH sector.
The GWC has included Market and Cash as one of the priority topics for capacity building, and initiated the development of a 5 days residential Market Based Programming for WASH in Emergency (MBPWIE) training with the GWC TWiG on CASH and Market. The training modules were developed in 2018, with a first pilot delivered in Nairobi for the ESA region in Nov 2018.
Training material are now being revised based on lesson learned and feedback from first pilot. A second pilot is planned in September 2019 in Indonesia for the EAP region. A Training of trainer will be organized in 2020 to ensure roll out at global level.
It will be delivered by WASH and cash experts. It targets NGOs and UNICEF staff wishing to develop their knowledge and skills for cash and market based intervention for WASH.
