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

june and in particular on cash so very much appreciate everyone's make the time to be here and even today

so much to make this possible i mean he we've all been in
this game for awhile know just how much what it takes to put on a conference like this even one day it's been a great team effort
