Since the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, the Triple Nexus has had a high priority in the humanitarian reform debate. The declared goal of the Triple Nexus approach is to improve the linkages between humanitarian aid, development cooperation, and peacebuilding.
This CHA research project contributed to enriching the predominantly abstract Triple Nexus debate with concrete examples of local practices while looking at it from a humanitarian standpoint. The research results on the Peace Nexus were made available in the form of country studies, a Nexus publication, and a CHA conference on 26-27 October 2020. The project was complemented by a Triple Nexus evaluation for the German NGO Welthungerhilfe.
