The signs of the times point to an urgent response to prolonged conflicts and exacerbated fragility in different countries. The Triple Nexus approach, in this regard, provides a policy discourse that emphasizes the complementarity and integration of development and peace actions with humanitarian actions in addressing the roots of conflict and state fragility. The Nexus approach is suggested to be a context-specific solution driven by on-ground needs, in contrast to merely implementing pre-existing frameworks.
In line with this, the Reality of Aid – Asia Pacific (RoA-AP), CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness – Asia (CPDE Asia), and the International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-Determination and Liberation (IPMSDL) will launch their Nexus Policy Research entitled “Localizing the Triple Nexus: 9 Country Contexts” and hold a multi-stakeholder dialogue with CSOs, donors, and multilateral institutions.
The dialogue aims to facilitate peer-learning and bolster solidarity among development actors to forge a more effective development cooperation engagement as well as raise the discourse on the implementation of the Triple Nexus in conflict-affected, fragile contexts.
The event will feature the presentation of case studies contextualizing the Nexus approach in nine countries: Syria, Bangladesh, Lake Chad Region, Cameroon, Mozambique, Afghanistan, Mali, Guatemala, and the Philippines framed along the themes of gender equality, environment and climate, and refugees and forced migration. Succeeding the research contributors and their presentation are reactors from different donor and multilateral agencies. Before the event wraps up, a moderated discussion will take place to synthesize the event and reap key policy recommendations.
The Nexus Policy Research Launch and Multi-stakeholder Dialogue will be held on September 7, 2021, Tuesday at 8-10 PM Manila time The event is open to the public and will be live-streamed via Facebook. To participate, register here: http://bit.ly/nexus-launch.
