Hi Bilal

thank you for these question.

You got response from the group members and some additions for your
reference

2-data protection. What is it and why it is important in CASH projects?
*in the context of conflict crisis, sometimes the displaced population seek
refugee in other neighboring country but that country does not want them to
stay there for longer time... (example of Nigerians in Cameroon) and
refoulment/forced migration is highly anticipated. In this situation, if we
share the list of BFs with their status then definitely we are
deviating from the key principles and causing harm. *

3-if CASH programs can cause gender violence or conflict in the HH? How
should we react?
*As stephanie suggested to do a robust gender analysis which is the key,
additionally your PDMs should apply this gender lens for reaction. This
happens **especially when the communities are settling in the newly shifted
areas**, and to me cash can cause Intra-holds conflicts/harm in case the
community engagement process is not very well done, Village Committees are
not listened, sensitized, engaged, direct target population (HHs) are not
consented and cultural aspects are not underlined - this needs proactive
rather reactive approach. *

Hi Bilal,
I recommend you also join the CaLP D-group as you may get more responses about cash programmes there.
However a few short suggestions from me in red below:

2-data protection. What is it and why it is important in CASH projects?
This is very important, as personal data can potentially be used to harm someone, (imagine if someone had your bank account details, your social security number or fingerprint etc) and one of the basic human rights is a right to privacy. As NGOs, we have a responsibility to protect the information we collect about our beneficiaries and keep it safe. This is important in cash programmes as we often use third parties to deliver assistance, such as remittance agencies, banks, mobile money or other financial services. We have to be sure that if we are sharing personal data with a 3rd party that it is secure and safe, and there are clear provisions for destroying the data after the project closes.
I recommend searching the CaLP Website – they have many resources on this, including an e-learning course and a guidance note on Protecting Beneficiary Privacy in cash transfer programmes.

3-if CASH programs can cause gender violence or conflict in the HH? How should we react?
There is a lot of conversations happening at the moment about gender and cash. In general I would say to do careful gender analysis, and try to understand whether or not cash is exacerbating the problem or if it was an underlying issue or contextual issue that was already there. Again, the CaLP website has a lot of resources and recent papers about gender and cash where you can read more about it. WRC also has a new toolkit for considering GBV in CBI - https://www.womensrefugeecommission.org/issues/livelihoods/research-and-resources/1549-mainstreaming-gbv-considerations-in-cbis-and-utilizing-cash-in-gbv-response
And the ERC project also did a useful guide for Protection in CBI - http://www.cashlearning.org/downloads/erc-guide-for-protection-in-cash-based-interventions-web.pdf which includes a protection risks and benefits analysis tool.

4- I need to read alot about real cases that are related to risk mitigation. If there are documents that would be awesome.
Try searching the CaLP website thematic pages on Risk - http://www.cashlearning.org/cash-transfer-programming-and-risk/cash-transfer-programming-and-risk

5- i need a modules for a concept note for cash intervention program for data management system.
Have a look at ELAN which has a lot of resources that might be useful for you on this

Hope that’s helpful,
Steph

Hi all

I hope that you are well

I have some questions in the monitoring and evaluation.

I have been working in the sector for quite some time.

I have faced some new terms and issues while working to monitor CASH
programs

1- children participate in monitoring and evaluation (how is that supposed
to be since we work to avoid causing in har to them.

2-data protection. What is it and why it is important in CASH projects?

3-if CASH programs can cause gender violence or conflict in the HH? How
should we react?

4- I need to read alot about real cases that are related to risk
mitigation. If there are documents that would be awesome.

5- i need a modules for a concept note for cash intervention program for
data management system.

Thanks in advance

Best regards

Bilal
