The Triple Nexus Approach

The Triple Nexus Approach

humanitarian, development and peace integration

In recent years we have continued to see increases in the levels of child depravation and poverty across the world, particularly in many of the fragile contexts we work in. In fragile contexts, children suffer extreme levels of violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect. Working flexibly across the Humanitarian, Development and Peacebuilding Nexus (HDPN) unleashes the potential for deeper, transformational change, even in the most challenging contexts.

We continue to apply our approach to adaptive nexus programming in fragile contexts. Our nexus programming approach is designed to enable World Vision to address immediate survival needs and build towards a better future for vulnerable children and families in fragile contexts.

Transcending the traditional humanitarian/development/peacebuilding divide means combining working "in" fragility (the work of protecting lives, ensuring the survival of the most affected and most vulnerable children and protecting their rights), while contributing to their recovery and resilience after crises by working "on" fragility (addressing the root causes of fragility so that progress towards peace and stability becomes possible).

Responding flexibly to this kind of volatile change requires humanitarian, development and peacebuilding actors to work flexibly together towards collective outcomes for children.

The Triple Nexus Approach

The Triple Nexus approach emerged from global discussions on better integrating humanitarian, development, and peace efforts, especially after landmark events like the World Humanitarian Summit.

It’s an approach that aims to address the overlapping challenges of humanitarian crises, development setbacks, and peace-related issues.

World Vision’s programmatic response to working across the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus in fragile parts of the world is the Fragile Context Programming Approach (FCPA).

The FCPA gives front-line programme teams and the key local actors and partners the freedom to make decisions quickly based on effective real-time context analysis and monitoring and enables Field Offices in fragile contexts to cut bureaucracy, improve risk management and increase agility and effectiveness.

The Triple Nexus Approach

We have been implementing FCPA programmes since 2018 in South Sudan and subsequently in supporting Partnership Spotlight Projects in Honduras, DRC, and Afghanistan. More recently we have applied the FCPA Framework on the Irish Aid Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP) programming implemented in Melut County, South Sudan 2019-2022.

Since January 2023 we have been applying our adaptive nexus approach to our work across programming in 10 countries and capturing our learning from that.
