Exploring the Evolving Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus: A Meta-Evaluation

Since 2018, a growing number of evaluations have explored how organizations have adopted humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) or double nexus approaches. These evaluations delve into progress, barriers and ways to improve connectedness and complementarity of humanitarian, development and Peace sectors.

Commissioned by ALNAP, Lezlie Moriniere (IRMA co-founding partner) worked with a wide team to conduct a meta-evaluation on the HDP nexus. IRMA support to this study included the tireless efforts of Marilise Turnbull and associates Agathe Mazars and Rachael Hinkel. 

The paper curates findings from 90 evaluations undertaken between 2018 and April 2022, exploring how organizations have advanced their version of a nexus approach. It provides insights into the operationalization and implementation of the triple nexus in practice, offering lessons learned and trends for the wider sector.

ALNAP will conduct a webinar on 7 December featuring the presentation of the mapping and synthesis paper, followed by a moderated panel discussion on actionable steps to advance HDP nexus ways of working.
