Reaching those in need within 72 hours of a crisis with life-saving assistance is achievable. By prepositioning programs ahead of emergencies, humanitarian agencies can deliver high-impact aid without compromising on speed.

As part of its Ready to Respond: Cash Preparedness Learning Series, the IRC invites you to two webinars sharing new knowledge and tools needed to effectively preposition cash relief programs ahead of crises. These webinars follow the learning series launch event, Meeting the Demand for Electronic Payments in Humanitarian Response co-hosted by the IRC and UNCDF in New York on July 22nd.
