The objective of this webinar was to highlight the challenges, gaps, and myths that are blocking the move from theory to practice in gender-sensitive aligned and linked humanitarian cash and social protection interventions. This webinar was structured as a panel discussion and provided the opportunity to hear from a range of humanitarian cash and social protection experts on the myths, challenges, gaps, and blockages that appear to be standing in the way of moving from theory to the practical implementation of linked or aligned gender-sensitive humanitarian cash and social protection responses. In spite of a growing number of resources and tools promoting the application of gender-sensitive approaches both in humanitarian cash and social protection responses, there is a need for improved understanding of how to put this into practice in linked interventions.
