This learning report stems from bilateral discussions with the Collaborative Cash Delivery (CCD) Network’s members in Ukraine and Poland, many of whom were on the cusp of designing or implementing C4P programmes as part of the Ukraine response and were seeking learning and experience from each other.

Together with the Regional C4PTF, it was agreed to commission this learning report to understand what programming is being labelled as C4P within the context of the Ukraine response, what elements and parameters make up this programming, and how the programmes are operationalised.

The objective of this research was to gather and analyse C4P programmatic experience and lessons learned from the Ukraine crisis response to support the work of agencies engaging in C4P as part of the response while contributing to the global bank of operational learning and guidance on C4P. Recommendations are formulated to inform current responses, but also future ones.

This report has the following structure:

Section 1: Background and Introduction
Section 2 – Overview of Cash and Protection interventions in the Ukraine Response
Section 3 – Operationalisation of the Definition of C4P in the Ukraine Response
Section 4 – Coordination
Section 5: Causality analysis
Section 6: Designing C4P interventions
Section 7: Targeting methodologies
Section 8: Transfer value determination
Section 9: Links with social protection schemes
Section 10: Monitoring and evaluating C4P programming

Methodology: 19 KIIs were carried out with representatives from local and international organizations operating for the Ukraine response

In addition, a desk review was carried out on C4P operational documents from 2 INGOs operating in Poland, 3 INGOs operating in Ukraine, 1 LNGO operating in Ukraine, 1 UN agency operating in Moldova and 1 INGO in Lithuania.
