The humanitarian-development-peace nexus: current status and discourse

Download briefing


This is part of the Explain: Essential briefings for humanitarian decision-makers series.

Linking short-term support with efforts addressing the root causes of crisis is far from new, but framing this as a ‘triple nexus’ across humanitarian, development and peace (HDP) actors is a recent development, prompted by the World Humanitarian Summit and the ‘Leave No One Behind’ theme of the 2030 Agenda.

This has brought a cultural shift in the humanitarian sector, sparking structural reforms and prompting more traditional agencies, like the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the World Bank, to form partnerships unthinkable a decade ago.
