CCD LEARNING REVIEW (FEBRUARY 2020)
Hannah Reichardt completed a review of CCD’s existing learning sources and approach to learning as well as numerous in-depth interviews with practitioners. This was done by exploring learning insights to the specific elements integral to our impact model outcomes, assessing their application to key initiatives, and summarising future intentions.

DATA SHARING GUIDANCE
PRACTICAL GUIDANCE ON DATA SHARING
Protecting personal data and privacy in field work: A guide for data sharing between humanitarian organisations
DATA SHARING AGREEMENT TEMPLATE
This template is intended to promote responsible data practices and sharing between organisations in the nonprofit sector, and, where applicable, their private sector partners.
In partnership with Pivotal Labs, CCD is exploring how best to support CCD members to design collaborative cash responses. Draft guidance outlining key steps and design decisions for developing and customising a cash collaboration model has been developed and piloted as part of the Response Builder platform.
This guidance was further developed based on best practices along with insights and recommendations from CCD members. It will form the basis for a newly
designed digital product that provides CCD members a collaboration sandbox where they can quickly model different collaboration design choices based on guidance and best practices. This product will help CCD members to design, setup, and establish CCD collaborations to respond to crisis as well as run collaborative scenario planning in the preparedness phase.

POSITION PAPERS AND STATEMENTS
ADVOCACY BRIEF IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
COVID-19 has an unprecedented impact globally in terms of access to and the capacity of healthcare systems to respond. The health crisis is yet to peak in many countries and in low income contexts, the concern is that its impact will be severe where it is not physically possible to practice physical distancing. As we saw during Ebola in 2014 or in cholera outbreaks, physical distancing is a choice that only a minority can afford in low income countries. It is anticipated that this crisis will result in significant numbers of households falling into poverty (or deeper into poverty) as a result of the enormous economic impacts of measures needed to contain this virus: recovery from the economic impact of this, will not be short term. Those most vulnerable to this are those without job security, small businesses, those in the informal economy and in unpaid care. We recognise that these roles are the backbone of many national economies. We recognise that a large burden will currently fall to communities to meet care and other needs to affected households. The impact on women is particularly strong, given their role as caregivers, which puts them at particular health and economic risk due to their roles in both the informal sector and care economy and the additional care burden of the sick and also of children, now schools are closed. Governments should recognise too, that children and caregivers depended on breakfasts and/or lunches in schools to avoid going hungry. At the same time there are those excluded from society, stateless, displaced, refugees who are extremely vulnerable to the impact of the pandemic.
GLOBAL REFUGEE FORUM GOOD PRACTICES PLEDGE
On 17-18 December 2019, UNHCR hosted the first-ever Global Refugee Forum to "generate impactful commitments and other pledges from these actors, geared towards making tangible, long-term policy and practice shifts to improve the lives of refugees and host communities worldwide". The forum focused on six thematic areas: arrangements for burden and responsibility-sharing, education, jobs and livelihoods, energy and infrastructure, solutions, and protection capacity.
In support of this event, CCD Colombia submitted a pledge to the Global Refugee Forum committing to transforming cash and voucher assistance (CVA) delivery through collective impact. CCD Colombia pledged to deliver people-centric multi-purpose cash assistance (MPCA) at scale in a coordinated, adaptable, harmonised, and efficient way to address refugees, vulnerable migrants, and host communities’ critical needs by:
efficient, safe data sharing: CCD Colombia commits to using a shared data management system (to avoid duplication of beneficiaries and ensure referrals). CCD members commit to data protection and will sign a common data sharing agreement.
harmonised tools, approaches: With flexibility and speed, CCD members will coordinate tools, align processes, and adopt the same selection criteria for consistent, systemised programming across Colombia and in their refugee responses. CCD Colombia's members commit to learning by conducting independent evaluations of CCD work, value for money studies, and data monitoring to improve its selection criteria.
longer term solutions, integrated programming: CCD Colombia strives to deliver an integrated service package by complementing MPCA with access to health, education, protection for vulnerable children and livelihoods for their families by facilitating durable solutions, socioeconomic integrations based on do-no-harm principles. CCD aims to reach "last mile” populations, cover gaps in refugee responses; strengthen referral pathways (e.g. to government-led social protection); reduce vulnerability, exclusion, and exploitation, and ensure MPCA creates a cash ecosystem with market-based approaches for jobs and livelihoods.
INCLUSIVE SOCIAL PROTECTION IN HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE:
IS THERE A ROLE FOR CCD (DECEMBER 2019)
This position paper discusses the potential for social protection to act as a faster, more efficient way to deliver assistance in certain contexts and looks at how social protection and humanitarian responses intersect and what this means for NGOs and other cash actors working along the cash value chain. CCD looks out how social protection can be embedded into CCD activities and staff training, facilitated as part of collaborations at the field level, and awareness raised within the humanitarian community, as well as next steps to keep programming and advocacy at the forefront of discussions around social protection issues.
