Demystifying the Humanitarian, Development and Peace Nexus

At the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016, the UN and World Bank committed to a “new way of working” to transcend the humanitarian-development divide.  Since then, the concept has been considered in the context of UN reform and the “triple nexus” – the nexus between humanitarian, development, and – when appropriate – peace. Despite the many discussions, workshops and briefing papers, many NGOs and partners are yet to grapple with what this means for affected persons, the system as a whole, and NGOs.
