Navigating the Nexus: a case for Yemen
In this third and last video of this short series, CSPPS Yemeni member, Youth Without Borders Organisation for Development (YWBOD) and Civil Alliance for Peace (CAP) zoom in on the Triple Nexus, referring to the interlinkages between humanitarian, development and peace actors. An integrated and proactive approach, instead of an isolated and reactive approach, can reduce the high humanitarian costs in fragile and conflict-affected countries.
At the centre of strengthening the coherence between humanitarian, development and peace efforts, is the aim of effectively reducing people’s needs, risks and vulnerabilities, supporting prevention efforts and thus, shifting from delivering humanitarian assistance to ending need. The Triple Nexus approach aims for integrated economic and social development in peace and conflict situations. Improving resilience to shocks of crisis and continued conflict is an integral part of the approach needed.
In embarking on preventive and conflict-sensitive measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic challenges actors should attentively navigate and transcend the conventional siloes between humanitarian action, peace and longer-term development, as all three are linked inextricably. Inclusive, meaningful and continuous dialogue between all stakeholders is essential for successful collaboration
