oh i see
ooh ooh e. e. e. o. c. i. e.
oh ooh
i mean i i i. e. e. e. o. e.
i i i a i. e.
thanks very much we believe so the incarnation
of the gambling reached of the wealth humanitarian summit and it's true that men is
that all hand and i will look at it a little bit today
so it's a lie with the grand bargaining goal
supporting funding the local and national respondents
i think this is what it's uh um we actually jointly with the
government t. l. c. w. a. b. and h. c. ah
designed the program together it's managed in implemented completely jointly
to the extent that we actually share an office
it's not just a regular normal plot the shit we have what we call the joint management cell
and the stuff for race the magically so you get w. at
the monitoring stuff and the t. l. c. monitoring stuff together
for example it builds on the experience the both agencies have we
been running joint programs together incorrectly since two thousand and twelve
it's complementary for example t. l. c. has a protection mandate that w. f. p. doesn't have
it's set up for the long term so t. l. c. owns the relationship with the
bank the financial service provider supported advice like w. f. b. but they own it
it leverage is awful the best bits of the government to have this very extensive social welfare network
they have a lot of expertise in targeting and now i'm eliminating duplication et cetera
they have very good checks income to checks they have five different or
the old fart cheese on that particular part of the program
we both monitor separately and together we have that party monitoring
as well so there's a big focus on accountability
both to the donors to the community but also to
the beneficiaries and we put a lot of emphasis
on call centre is you can't call them what lines in turkey um
face spoke the web sites and all the c. community outreach
i think what we've learned is that the more we work together the
more collaborative lee the easier it becomes i'm having stuff together in
the same office really helps and the more the technical stuff for
aligned the more the strategic side becomes easier to get a
and this also facilitates a two way mentor shit between the two organisations
and slowly i think we're learning to do more with the government as well
so we've got that more integrated approach it's not just the
assistants but it's building a longer term legacy as well
on top of that it's
we have to make sure that the other agencies are involved there other agencies that have
strong complimentary aspects either in that perhaps about
that programming or in their approaches
and that actually when your uh i'm relatively is self contained unit
with the government t. l. c. and w. it be
is actually quite difficult so we're having to make a conscious
effort to do that out reach to build stronger linkages
with the work that u. n. h. c. r. is doing for example with the migration services in turkey
with the n. g. o. to have that ability to drill down deeper and
get deep red uh stop those people who are falling through the cracks
it is difficult sometimes aligning with national systems um you work at
the speed of the government not necessarily at your own speed
um we wanted a higher transfer value more closely
aligned with the minimum expenditure about skit
but obviously take he wants to ensure that social cohesion so they don't
want the refugees getting considerably mole then their own a countryman
and they're a very strong data protocols in turkey which make it quite difficult for us to provide
some of the this aggregated information that we would normally provides
we are of course like in turkey that we have this
developed and widespread government with strong financial networks as well
um but i think we've learned that even when the capacity is not that we can build it
we're in line with the grand bargain go go three which is obviously the use of cash
um and here it is unconditional unrestricted multipurpose catch switches doing basic
needs even on w. a. b. it's not just covering food
um the program is being fully operational really since december so it's still quite early
but they're also clear lessons coming out as well in these lessons are very much in line with those
of use in it the p. c. g. study that we did in jordan lebanon as well
that preference for cash is the monks the beneficiaries and it's growing as people get more familiar
and i think many of the points i'm going to make you will know of anyway
but we are lucky in having a a population that is catch literate
they have one not necessarily which back in their own countries
they know how to manage on a limited budget they've been eating out their savings
for a long time and falsely many uh been displacement for many years
um and by giving them the norm restricted cash that
they can prioritise helps them manage that budget
giving them a chance to use a. t. m.s or p. o. s. also helps
um and what we have notices that the
cheaply the women really appreciate the dignity
the discretion and the convenience of either being able to use the local still
thus look try market will go to a big supermarket when there were promotions and things as well
it hasn't as far as where where we've checked pretty extensively
created divisions within the household between men and women
and roughly eighty percent of this of what they get is
going on renting utilities with fruit as the points
what it does allow us to do is just the more time working on targeting
on monitoring and much less on logistics and that's really coming through very strongly
i think we still have more work to do on the limit it eliminating the risk of road and track he
is not so advanced in its by matrix in the banking system um so this definitely worked for us there
and i think another clear lesson learnt has been the need to take the local community with
you they need to know what's going on because that watching a comparing as well
i think
so thank you don't and i would like to speak a little bit about the
third hit accuser fiji context here it's three million refugees right now for
students in addition to three hundred thousand uh from more than fifty a different
national does as well funded them temporary international and commentary and protection context
so the grand a bargain provided them window of hope for them uh tomorrow
we will upload seven hundred thousand uh cards for the few refugees
we did this number so that's why we're where we are looking into
the ascent to the ground but again lessons because provide them hope
so in line with the groundbreaking not gone number seven we have
increasing collaborative women came up here planning off and funding
now uh two years from the outset we have one done or a
cool funding the program it's the largest underground uh from echo
uh and uh it's under the three billion a facility for refugees in turkey
and so knowing that it should go to two thousand eighteen
uh uh this build government and initially confidence so
when we compare it to two thousand fifteen where we didn't we have big contrast we didn't know what if we could assist
the next week we have more permanent and a stable uh situation right now
so uh it's a true one card model designed from the beginning
as one card model which can allow other actors to join
so not placing or integration uh actors as it is in jordan and eleven no
it is already joined right now for example by the unicef to make condition cash finance for children if
they tend to the percentage of eighty percent of the conditional cash uh transferring get for vacation program
so about the learning on this lands it's easier to design as one card from the beginning
instead of changing to one card halfway into large scale by n. g.
o.s orient agencies examples like again maybe jordan that or not
but even so into or something it uses n. has the emergency social safety net that's affected the
landscape for eight euros we acknowledge that so smaller cash based programs by n. g. o.s
have reduced in order to find out i forced into the is to send a program dimensions also safety net
and you open fisheries are blank um through the same process as everyone else would be used to set
uh in just have scoop and funding to focus on complementary programming
so supporting registration back and three use you know s. thing literate initially starting groups that will not be
eligible for the is the same is some kind of complementary where the engines can assist there
can be opened also f. actively to other transfers as we start discussing any strategy right now
uh for the san issue strong conditional to on conditional will be require on this cool
the flexibility of the platform would be an assist as the is sent platform
uh it's again a mess of single donor um so yeah this is
a challenge for us that it is reduced contribution from other donors
a single dollar is highly involved at this one part models also test for new breed of assistance
uh there is also an impact of political changes of course so we
have some very restless scallop on this context uh depends significantly on
the existing profile deal of n. g. o.s and other actors in
the country donors and even uh most importantly the government buying
another mess with the ground again gone goal number ten so uh what we have
is an enhanced engagement between commentary and and open actors between emergency and sustainability
so literally a existing safety net infrastructure like uh
it makes sustainability caucasian understanding efficiency and
most important national ownership for for this such a cash phase uh um program
uh refugees apply for the central government to the social assistant solidarity foundations uh there's
more than one thousand a foundation offices inside thirty on this context which is
but being on an an an existing uh infrastructure within thirty of social safety net
um of course we hard at the tar c. supplementing offices and
translated not supporting too high volume areas where reviews are
concentrated in different locations inside turkey especially on the borders this
out a toss out and started return order and sample
uh we have a learning here that to a need to build trust between stakeholders and overcoming turn the sentiment
neither cross sector cornish including crossing national international governments
in society united nations and the environment
and various we have obvious then vessel forking to nash instruction in long term
so this is that everything is the fishes when now a profile
in national welfare systems refuges have by a profile there
this an essentially incentive buys restocking and identity and addresses
improvised or isn't will also assist cost populations
so it's an infrastructure provides opportunities for for us and complimentary program an
example the operation social protection activities implemented by the government social networks
so there are some berries he's the scallop if our time and energy quite the coordination and with interest
as no some sentimental in cognition existing right now in turkey
quick conclusions over here being innovative is never easy you know we are having a very tough time on a
um have many hours of nicely panic uh we have to upload the cards like tomorrow for example
uh we're not moving very fast and issued is very high a scale
when the s. n. gets attention it tends to be about the multipurpose catch single car single donor
but not about the impact on the refugees right now but for us real ambition is the way we
are all read learning to work together is the most important thing yeah a decision taking together
one voice to the government and donors and as well as you today uh my
five final part is about that's the essence of the grand per game
