normally i i love my job it's a great place to work and cash
00:00:04
we talked about is fascinated but but right now i must have okay
00:00:08
could you just sum up that they just put it in real time and try to put that some of the main things receive like that
00:00:17
uh_huh
00:00:20
uh_huh
00:00:22
so um we have a lot of ground today this is really great
00:00:27
uh we've heard from thirty one different speakers as some people may say we
00:00:32
don't lamb dishes trying to fit thirty one people into one day
00:00:35
but uh i hope what we've done is bringing different perspectives and really reflect the state
00:00:41
of the debate on the stage of practised in cash as it is today
00:00:45
so we have speakers from many different countries uh i sort of make you less but i i run out of wood
00:00:51
so we had this because from your own liberian sure lanka
00:00:54
turkey's about we somehow yeah the us no way elsewhere
00:00:59
speakers from you and and years private sector academics governments
00:01:05
we've already covered i think the whole field and we've heard a lot about a different
00:01:10
uh issues substantial different issues about this question how do we make cash happen
00:01:16
i i started writing down a few quotes as well let me just read out a few of the quotes that really jumped out
00:01:21
so starting early on in the day uh gabrielle said trash works this is a nice to work work
00:01:28
so well question is so how do we work with cash and that's really what we've been discussing
00:01:33
there's a sense we've come so far since last year when we were just to find what we should do catch
00:01:38
and then in them sane within our ministry case the caches not been a so
00:01:42
it seems to be a general flexion where are we were talking about how to do cash well how to get to grips
00:01:48
with some of the substantial issues that were how to get under the bonnet and see how the engine really works
00:01:54
what were you doing cash is good we had about examples from turkey as about we in jordan
00:02:02
uh we talked about social safety nets offering a powerful means of providing assistance
00:02:07
uh we talked about much broader picture about the democratic the consolidation
00:02:12
uh increasing the need for humanitarian aid was challenging the
00:02:16
supplier let's each provided at the same time
00:02:21
we talked about some of the the tensions around pertaining proximity populations
00:02:25
uh uh what is the relationship between proximity and access at the funds
00:02:30
and influence what does that mean for local organisations was international organisation
00:02:36
i was struck by very practical core uh from our colleagues um
00:02:40
from sure like right thing saying uh a crisis hit and we really didn't
00:02:45
have any use sign local governments which too late response by three moments
00:02:51
this file is a very clear example of the practicalities that we've all been face
00:02:57
and then just for recently talking about the wider opportunities in the last session of cash as an instrument for for
00:03:04
so let me try to pick out very briefly and it seems we we we talked at
00:03:09
the beginning of the day night all set up a whole they say i say it
00:03:14
so in the cache challenges our way of work thanks
00:03:22
six a we touched on six key aspects of that i'm not gonna try going to make
00:03:26
that all of the on any of them but it's less that what they what we
00:03:29
talked about the role the private sector thank you so much was clearly a new way of
00:03:33
working i was very struck but they didn't seem to be any dispute about that
00:03:38
everyone all the speakers saying yeah private sector should be doing that the
00:03:41
delivery of cash pretty much everyone said occasionally you know maybe
00:03:44
age uh and you know the better handing trash people but in general that's what i heard reflects of the room today reflection
00:03:53
that was the first the second is the role of government and we seem to be looking at increased government
00:03:58
leadership in response an actual thought that came to have a very strongly from some of according to government
00:04:05
about this is a defining difference in relation to responding to conflict
00:04:10
i was struck also listen to the calling from streamlined got going from flank of the
00:04:14
collaboration between ministries may not be an easier than collaboration between our own operating it
00:04:21
the third challenge was around developing a internal capacity ways of working so well
00:04:25
i was wonderful to hear about strategic changes within operation latencies i don't
00:04:31
and the development of new capacities for instance run markets i was very struck by comment earlier on
00:04:36
saying you know charging seven to set a as an overhead on that level caches out rage
00:04:42
and again it seems to me that there was general agreement about that in the room and then part of the conversations well following
00:04:48
that through what are the implications for finance the other aspects of
00:04:52
what we do uh i'm thinking about the collaboration between different
00:04:59
the fourth area that really came through very strong use around collaboration than the complementary of different
00:05:04
uh roles i don't thing and it's a lot more about that okay this is um
00:05:09
still a very light conversation i was struck by the sense that uh a direct quote i wrote down with
00:05:15
still and we're all learning about this and it tells me that there was a strong appetite to learn
00:05:20
uh one of the questions we have is around the level of ambition that goes with that appetite
00:05:25
uh how far should we be pushing to change i thought was very striking just in the last panel that we clearly some
00:05:31
different views um around that also different views reflected in the kind of targets that we mentioned the agencies is that
00:05:39
associated with that that there's a light questions will this is so what is the right level of consolidation among operational
00:05:45
agencies that seems to be one of the the questions that we be that's been swirling around to today
00:05:52
the fifth area was around so what does this mean for down as we just discussed this uh on the last panel
00:05:58
there's there's a general sense all funding pushes on working well enough to make the most of the potential cash
00:06:04
uh and i was struck by some of the very a concrete questions that were raised on
00:06:08
or spinal about common principles resulting location coordination the language of needs assessment that's all
00:06:15
it's not like there's quite a lot that we agree on even at the same time and many different perspectives
00:06:21
uh and critically different perspectives around the loft area which is this whole question of
00:06:25
wonderful so we talked about the link between cash another aspect graham bargain
00:06:31
but really it seems to me that the day close with this reflection on so
00:06:34
so how ambitious are we are we talking about incremental reform something more radical
00:06:40
and i was left with this question so do we have the political well over time to break up some of
00:06:45
the existing organisational arrangements uh and as i think my things and that's a big question that just cash
00:06:53
uh i'll be really interesting we we need to stay close to engage in that
00:06:56
i think we'll have discussion uh um play a a construct a problem
00:07:01
that they seem to me the question on the don't as they are in the room in the audience are we too reliant on a small
00:07:07
number of major agencies which become too used to being able to do
00:07:10
things themselves to discuss and the v. a. and says formants
00:07:15
and what would realistic alternative look like and feels that was still in the
00:07:20
crucible of trying to experiment with what those alternatives might look like
00:07:29
through all of this you know not free from my point of view i was thrilled by
00:07:34
the recognition of the roll cow plates and that without explicit and also
00:07:38
implicit so explicitly was very nice people saying that copies the
00:07:41
form a fertile and collective action on cash well uh that's wonderful
00:07:46
thing to hear that certainly the role with but play
00:07:50
um
00:07:52
i thought i'd also control of summed it up really well the first open planner is saying the cup is at
00:07:57
the forefront of the norms of work on nuts and bolts again that's precisely what we're trying to do
00:08:03
uh implicitly i think the way this whole conferences worked has and reflected cup at its best
00:08:10
bringing together people from many different perspectives and creating the space for constructive dialogue
00:08:15
which is now dealing with the realities of so how's cash working would be on the rhetoric and say
00:08:20
okay we all agree caches great what does it really mean impractical turns to make it happen
00:08:29
just reflecting on the conference on the the the volume of material we've covered a uh
00:08:35
we get cover law graham today and i hope very much that
00:08:38
this is a staging post an ongoing conversation because this is
00:08:42
not the end of the conversations i i hope you've had a chance to meet different people connect with old friends
00:08:48
uh and maybe reflect a little bit on the issues of the day together and i'm sure
00:08:52
we will continue to reflect on everything we've heard today uh after we've left this room
00:08:59
from campus code of you there to real big questions i think become one is so we need to keep
00:09:06
doing what we do i think that came through very strongly and this is something that will be taking
00:09:10
that we actually have a we have a members day tomorrow when we'll be talking about low this with
00:09:14
a membership uh we have a board meeting the day after trying to keep mentioned going on that
00:09:19
so the kind of things that we're doing a scout helping organisations come together to strengthen
00:09:24
the evidence base a developing standards with spheres was a mention a couple times
00:09:29
today making training available containing to can be next is on policy issues
00:09:34
is i think was very much racial a refund um by today
00:09:40
uh the second question i think for us is is a question about our own ambition which is something i'm really looking
00:09:46
forward to discussing with membership and the whole thing is so do we need to try to turn up the utterance
00:09:52
and i was really struck i thought jennifer well just comments were so insightful early in the
00:09:56
day need is growing the supply they'd is on the ball questionable fall in some ways
00:10:03
we need to have a respond to that how do we make use of the plaza pops
00:10:08
you see we have now to make the most of cash to drive up visions it
00:10:11
and do what we've all agreed we wanted to make the best use of limited resources the people in desperate need around the world
00:10:17
so is there a chance i think there's a chance to care that how do we try to increase
00:10:21
the traction around some of the more difficult issues and help us actually the whole divorce but okay
00:10:27
which
00:10:29
so let me close that um we have some drinks afterwards
00:10:35
i hope very much else they enjoy doing together
00:10:38
uh let me thank you all very much for making a first level cache form such a success
