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. More information coming soon.
