  5. With CC Specialists, identify potential partners for market based approach and nexus programming and private and public partnership programming. 
  6. Represent NRC Sudan in relevant working groups including the Cash Working Group, and support advisory and advocacy efforts for the broader humanitarian sector in Sudan to adopt MBP in strategies and plans.
