Financing the nexus gaps and opportunities from a field perspective

Published 24. Jun 2019
The humanitarian and development sectors have been aiming to increase collaboration to meet immediate humanitarian needs whilst strengthening community resilience and preparedness, and contributing to sustainable development and sustained peace. But has this been matched with flexible, multi-year and predictable funding at the operational level?

To respond to an IASC humanitarian financing priority, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with OCHA, OECD, the World Bank and ICVA, launched a study to map and analyse existing humanitarian and development funding flows and mechanisms in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, DR Congo, Ukraine and Uganda.

The study aims to determine how such financing mechanisms are adapted to country plans and situations on the ground. The findings and recommendations will contribute to the global policy discussion, urging action from donors, receiving countries, and other actors involved in nexus activities.
