UN Reform: The link to the "nexus" and what it means for non-UN actors

The third session of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, jointly organized by ICVA and PHAP took place on 8 June. This session explored the various UN reforms that are currently being rolled out in relation to the "nexus" – the repositioning of the UN development system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda, the restructuring of the UN peace and security pillar, and the shifting of the management paradigm in the UN. You can watch the recording below.



Focus: To provide NGOs (and others interested stakeholders) with an overview about the UN reforms in relation to the nexus, and the implications for NGOs and humanitarian action.
