Development Actors and the Nexus; lessons from crises in Bangladesh, Cameroon and Somalia

This report explores, from the vantage point of development cooperation, how to operationalize the ‘triple nexus’ of humanitarian−development−peace (HDP) action across five key areas:

  1. Partnerships and strategy
  2. Coordination and joined-up planning
  3. Programming
  4. Financing
  5. Organizational issues.


This report represents an initial effort to scope out, from a humanitarian’s perspective, how development actors − such as multilateral development banks (MDBs), bilateral donors and UN agencies − approach and operate in protracted humanitarian crises as a way to identify both the differences and areas of synergy, and to foster mutual understanding among HDP actors.
