The UN is currently undergoing reforms concerning its development, peace, and humanitarian work. On 8 June, PHAP and ICVA organized an online event exploring the various UN reforms that are currently being rolled out in relation to the humanitarian-development-peace nexus – including 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.
This third session of the learning stream on the "nexus" featured Stanlake Samkange from the World Food Programme (WFP), who provided an overview of current UN reforms and how they relate to WFP's work. Mario Samaja, UN Resident Coordinator in Mauritania, will gave his views on how these reforms impact work at the country level and provide an update on the changes to the Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator (RC/HC) system. Following these two presentations, Gareth Price-Jones from CARE International provided an analysis of the current changes and the possible implications for NGOs.
