i think they match the button uh uh that's been uh i'm told that since i spoke to watch
this morning actually have to be fast that was so i'll try and um rise to the challenge
i want to make a some general remarks in some uh remotes on the um
guidance not the general remarks have to do with the fact that they humanitarian that picture
is changing when now in a totally different well it's uh um we have
we have a after the what humanitarian somebody call to uh change the way we work
and now we're seeing also um a push towards a more
integrated humanitarian development a reaction in response to a crises
and this has relevance also for cash receive more and more a development corporation projects going
into the using cash so as a whale of a being implemented where even seen
developing uh in countries going into the social a safety net using cash so it's
it's more than what we're discussing here uh the use of of cash
um the second thing is um with respect to that
is um the links between the various topics um
i've already mentioned that humanitarian divert developments uh max's but also what we're
trying to do with cash how that does linking without the
policy we may want to promote we saw before someone be data
about how women than men react differently to using cash
all of that has to come together rather than as looking at we're gonna to agenda um
i'm focusing issues or everything else that all has to be integrate
so in that context we put together and we propose the cash guidance
in order to uh try and see if we
can have um efficiencies and effectiveness gate
let me repeat some of the things that i said during the presentations which i think are
uh maybe uh i didn't explain well it it is not one size fits all
it does not mean that the guidance now would be applied uh irrespective of the
context absolutely not this is where we want to go with this is where
we think the i the the uh the road should be but the role could
be this exact or uh but that's why we wanna go first secondly
not a it's not or eight should go through catch it doesn't make sense in in certain situations
like i don't know does not apply to small operations if you have a job providing yeah
a health services uh it helps a support for example and on
top of that you may have a small amount that
is delivered in cash does not apply it only applies in
very very big corporations dealing with cash and um so
let me let me let me just say a few more things on on the specifics
we did have a constructive dialogue recently with about eighty participants from
angel was a happily private sector to a un system recently
and we did listen this is not about us all
of a sudden coming up with an idea we're gonna force as a straight jacket they seem to everybody
we did listen i think the conclusions them this is objective lee um
outline the conclusions was that people were uh interest it's
uh uh um people where um generally um
a willing to explore the possibilities and but that
they did highlight some uh things that
we have to further clarify and some potential pitfalls that we have to avoid
what we're doing now is updating um a version of the um now too
taking board all of those uh comments we will distribute for further
uh feedback by the people that were in in b.
uh in the workshop and we will uh try and put a coherent paper on the table
in time for the um for september let's say for for the twenty eighteen hips
one of the things that was raised which is a very valid point m.
one of the thing that we have to do a lot of work on because it was not addressed in the guidance now
uh we thank the call it the department that with a a for highlighting it is how the
the two components into lake where you do have a big operation
away make sense to have cash where all the other things
have been tate in you get into this is how we going to do it how does the component a component b.
interlink if there's a problem what happens uh um
um how uh uh i mean it in a way who has the upper hand is it
the delivery or is it's uh the one that designs that catch that's a very
valid point people raise that um that we have to look through to and further expand
in order not in order to uh make things even move a remote clear um
somebody said before that it's uh uh maybe uh this note produced a jolt
i don't know if you're it's the we believe it's a jolt in the right direction but nonetheless if we were able to produce
a jolt and get spirits and the ability sentiments and feelings all
worked up about on how we to back to cash
we're on a to have done it and we want to
take these forward with the rest of you so um
let let's let's look at how to implement that take cash together and
