okay i want um i know it's late and i have to apologise overtly uh if i
00:00:08
will you because i'm going to agree with a lot of uh what
00:00:11
the other panelists have said uh i mean it doesn't show you
00:00:14
on the u. k. has been a proponent of cash in humanitarian settings and sickly
00:00:20
multipurpose cash for many years now and we'll know in this room what the benefits of cash
00:00:26
all in tons of efficiency but also in terms of effectiveness and
00:00:30
multiplier effects on sticking to the financial inclusion and economic recovery
00:00:37
i cashed also gives us the opportunity to provide you mentioned a differently
00:00:42
and you know wait that cuts across silos and
00:00:46
focuses on the beneficiary rotten the supplier
00:00:50
but will also pay at that cash can all their lives uh everything uh and some examples
00:00:56
having given intensive and attrition programs uh was
00:01:00
also thinking of intercession programs et cetera
00:01:03
it's a cash is not appropriate everywhere and for everything
00:01:06
it should really be particle response however um
00:01:12
we also saying that uh the risks of delivering
00:01:16
cash that awesome sometimes high top um
00:01:20
through the the the media in particular um or maybe um
00:01:28
and yeah okay that cash actually can be manage in a
00:01:32
way that reduces risk even move down in kind assistance
00:01:37
um and i think there's evidence that actually the misuse of cash is minimal
00:01:41
and that through digital transfers in particular we can greatly manage those risks
00:01:46
my first mentioned message was uh going to be that although we're not talking about why
00:01:52
catch anymore i think we still should to uh to some extent because uh we
00:01:59
we know when t. p. p. r. i. uh through the ripple has told us that
00:02:03
we could be delivering she mentioned it to cash in eighty percent option mention complex
00:02:09
and we could be providing forty percent of you mentioned eighteen those complex we catch
00:02:14
however uh as as you know in france fifteen we
00:02:16
were only providing seventy cents a collectively for cash
00:02:22
and this is really the the root of background bogging commitment on catch
00:02:26
and i'm really pleased to see a lot of progress has been
00:02:30
made and we've had a lot of country examples where
00:02:33
cash has really been at the centre of the response however
00:02:38
we think that change has been incremental and um
00:02:45
that unfortunately we we perceive that there is still some resistance
00:02:48
to change and to really skating up catch in uh
00:02:53
in a big way and i take you to accommodate multipurpose catch
00:02:59
but you might try coordination system organised through sexes is
00:03:04
bill fifty to manage that multi purpose catch
00:03:08
some serious that that type of chances will divert resources away from the sectors
00:03:15
and lower the quality of the outcomes in those particular sectors
00:03:19
separate budget lines for multipurpose cash transfers have proven controversial
00:03:24
with um to cluster lead agencies in particular
00:03:29
and we must also acknowledge that the fact that the owners provide should
00:03:33
match and funding in a fragmented way also contributes to you um
00:03:40
to basically limiting the the the the impact that that cash should have
00:03:47
so in the u. k. with committee to more than double um with the amount of imagine a that we
00:03:53
deliver three cash by twenty twenty five uh starting from
00:03:57
a base line fourteen point five percent last year
00:04:01
and we now want to move from current interactions so to support this as
00:04:06
emily was saying we are investing in evidence of what works where
00:04:10
and we are promoting the exchange of lessons um but
00:04:15
as the grand bargain commitments requires us to
00:04:18
we also testing new approaches and delivery models such as with echo in i don't know
00:04:26
i mean test saying there's new models we want to apply five brought a principles
00:04:33
the first one is to base our choice of transfers and modalities
00:04:40
on the context and only it's and so what we want to do
00:04:45
in lebanon is not going to be a blueprint for what
00:04:48
we want to do globally all in all the complex just because it might not be appropriate in those all the countries
00:04:54
the second one is that we do prefer cash vouchers and wherever feasible
00:05:00
um we will prefer cash advances and will report on them separately
00:05:05
and in lebanon uh for example um uh boston consulting group study showed that
00:05:11
chasing power of beneficiaries increased by nineteen to sense when you give them cash
00:05:17
instead of arches and then ninety percent of beneficiaries prefer catch not patches
00:05:25
the third principle is that we would like to deliver a
00:05:29
single transfer that covers as many nice as possible
00:05:34
we will continue to support the real of outcomes that can not be delivered through the transfer
00:05:40
however we do want to reduce the inefficiency that has
00:05:44
been generated in some contacts including limit on
00:05:47
by having multiple cash transfers for different purposes to the same beneficiaries
00:05:53
the full of principle is around supporting
00:05:57
governance and coordination that enhance effectiveness
00:06:01
but also protection accountability and transparency
00:06:06
so to do this and we will whenever possible fun to deliver cash separately
00:06:11
from all the functions including assessment targeting monitoring evaluation very much in line with what echo
00:06:18
uh wants to do through the gardens and that is to minimise inherent conflict
00:06:23
of interest that could reduce accountability transparency and ultimately an impact on beneficiaries
00:06:31
and we will measure performance through outcomes rotten outputs and
00:06:36
promote been officially participation throughout the program cycle
00:06:40
the fifth principle is that um we will choose implemented buttons for those
00:06:45
various functions and it's based on the transparent appraisal of the
00:06:49
comparative advantage and value for money and that could include the private
00:06:54
sector and again will do to do this country by country
00:06:58
but wherever possible we will favour national and
00:07:01
local systems um to provide sustainability ideally
00:07:07
if true oh development programs we could build national safety
00:07:13
nets and social protection systems that could deliver cash
00:07:17
two people affected by crises when there's a certain shot or a spike in
00:07:22
an ongoing crises that will be our preferred a model supper on time
00:07:28
and finally i think you'd mentioned uh we do want to harm annoys approaches with other
00:07:33
than as we don't want to do any of these alone we want to to
00:07:37
to call those to see where um we can find and synergies in in our
00:07:42
approach is again trying to do this on the ground at the country level
00:07:48
so my last one was was really going to you to beep
00:07:53
that we're facing the big choice now we all really ah
00:07:57
crosswords and either we continued to make the incremental gains that we've
00:08:02
been making in the past few years including the oscars
00:08:07
and we compromised to some extent on efficiency and effectiveness in
00:08:12
order to fit the current system that we have
00:08:15
well we find a new way of working that maximise is the impact of cash on the lives of beneficiaries
00:08:22
we think that the principles that just outline of for us an opportunity to do the last uh
00:08:27
and also create more opportunities for all he merchant partners to play their unique
00:08:32
role which we think is not necessarily to be the finance provider
00:08:40
but also to increase transparency to our chat space
