The World Bank and the humanitarian-development-peace nexus




The second session of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP, took place on 24 May. The event explored 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 also featured presentations from NGO representatives on how they are engaging in complex settings where the World Bank is working. Watch the recording below:
