Topic 2: The World Bank and the humanitarian-development-peace nexus

The World Bank and the humanitarian-development-peace nexus

On 24 May, the second session of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus will take place, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP. The event will explore the role of the World Bank when working in the context of conflict and fragility, and how their approach has changed since the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016. The session will also feature presentations from NGO representatives on how they are engaging in complex settings where the World Bank is working.

 

 

Focus: To provide NGOs (and others interested stakeholders) with an overview about the shift of the World Bank’s role and the various instruments used when working in the humanitarian-development-peace nexus and the opportunities for NGOs to engage and partner with the World Bank.

As part of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, this event is 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.
