In light of ongoing efforts to transition away from humanitarian Cash assistance in Iraq, a two-day workshop took place in Erbil on June 22 which gathered more than 32 gender-based violence (GBV) and cash and voucher assistance (CVA) actors with the goal of identifying priorities for the transition period related to GBV mainstreaming in humanitarian Cash and Social Protection assistance. This brief presents the recommendations that were formulated as a result of the workshop, highlighting critical actions to work toward mitigating GBV risks during the transition to greater Government assistance in place of current humanitarian cash assistance.
