Chapter Event: Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus 101

Join SID-Washington for a chapter event that will provide an introduction to the humanitarian-development-peace triple nexus and what it means for development actors. This event is part of the SID-Washington Series on Navigating the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus, which examines how international development intersects with the humanitarian and peace sectors.

There is growing recognition of the need to address the root causes of conflict and displacement through the perspective of the humanitarian-development-peace triple nexus. The Grand Bargain commitments on humanitarian financing also placed emphasis on the importance of synergies between these areas of intervention. SDG 16 (promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development) can also be viewed as the bridge that connects crisis response to sustainable development and peacebuilding in conflict-affected settings.

As these sectors come together, what are the opportunities and challenges of operationalizing the triple nexus? What are the structural changes required to effectively deliver sustainable outcomes for the people the aid sector serves? What role should different actors play in the nexus and how do they effectively work together to support and build strong, sustainable communities?

We hope you can join us to better understand how this triple nexus plays out in practice. Please note that all levels of expertise are welcome to participate in this event.

Registration for this event has closed. If you are still interested in attending, please send an email to events@sidw.org.
