The session will also feature presentations from NGO representatives on how they are engaging in complex settings where the World Bank is working. More information coming soon.

As part of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, this event will be the third session of six live interactive online learning events that ICVA and PHAP will be organizing in the coming months. The purpose of these sessions is to provide NGOs and aid workers with a stronger understanding of the efforts to overcome the divide between the humanitarian, development, and – when appropriate – peace communities.
