Donor perspectives on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus

Register now

On 11 September, ICVA and PHAP will organize the fifth and final session in the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus. After having explored how the three main types of actors in this nexus view the current processes and discussions, we will turn to the perspectives from the donor community. Join us for a discussion on how donors are approaching the issue:

  • How would they like to see humanitarian, development, and peace work coming together at all phases of the program cycle: including assessments, planning, prioritization, programming, and funding allocations?
  • How do they view the humanitarian principles, the SDGs, and UN reform in this context?
  • How are they considering to reform their own funding behaviors to enable the changes they would like to see?

Learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus

As part of the learning stream on the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, this event will be the third session of five live interactive online learning events that ICVA and PHAP will be organizing in the coming months. The purpose of these sessions is to provide NGOs and aid workers with a stronger understanding of the efforts to overcome the divide between the humanitarian, development, and – when appropriate – peace communities.
