The gFSC Cash & Markets WG (CMWG) main purpose is to support Food Security clusters through development of tools and guidance and global advocacy for country level needs. In view of this, in April 2015 the CMWG mapped and gathered information on cash activities and cash WGs at country-level in which the FS clusters are involved. This information was also used to shape the agenda of the first Cluster Coordinators’ Retreat held in Rome in July 2015.
