Intercross the Podcast Episode #51 Harnessing the Power of Cash with Jo Burton

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with Jo Burton, ICRC’s Global Cash Focal Point. Ten percent of the world’s humanitarian assistance is now in cash, marking a 40% increase from 2015 to 2016. What exactly do we mean by cash transfer programming? What are the advantages and risks? What are some of the ways that ICRC is utilizing cash for assistance and protection programs? And how, as part of the larger Red Cross movement, are we harnessing the power of cash to ensure accountability and that people remain at the center of their own recovery? Hosted by Niki Clark and Austin Shangraw.
