The session explored how social protection instruments, particularly cash and voucher assistance, can be used to manage and support cases of GBV in humanitarian and human mobility contexts. Speakers discussed evidence of how cash and voucher assistance can help mitigate GBV risks as well as support survivors of GBV to transition into more resilient livelihoods, illustrating this with examples from the field in two different regions. The discussion also explored the relevance of cash and voucher assistance for GBV survivors to be linked to complementary social protection mechanism and/or systems in these contexts.
