Humanitarian Development Nexus: What is the New Way of Working? Practical examples 

The majority of humanitarian operations around the world are protracted. In these situations, the distinction between the approach of humanitarian and development actors can be unclear and the ways of working do not always fit neatly together. For example, humanitarian planning cycles are typically annual, which do not easily fit with the longer-term development planning processes.  We have known these challenges for over 30 years and there have been a number of attempts to address them, including linking relief, recovery, and development (LRRD), the continuum, the contiguum, early recovery, etc.

The World Humanitarian Summit (WHS) generated the “New Way of Working” which aims to address the “humanitarian-development nexus”. But, is the "New Way of Working" just a new label? Or is it a game changer that will bridge the divide and ensure that humanitarian action and development are mutually reinforcing?

This topic will be addressed in two webinars, both facilitated by Panos Moumtzis, Team leader and Director, IASC STAIT.
