Addressing the triple nexus and climate security challenge


    Climate change



Reducing risk is fundamental to reducing humanitarian needs and achieving sustainable development. A key objective is to ensure that all humanitarian and development action is risk-informed, and that humanitarian response to crises enables communities to increase their capacity to deal with future shocks and stresses. For this, a shift is required from reactive and repetitive crisis response to more forward-looking and anticipatory risk management which integrates the disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate security agendas with the humanitarian, development and peace nexus. 

The discussion will offer a space for experiences from the field to be presented and showcased as practical examples of the triple nexus in action from a wide range of regions, but also from the perspective of different thematic areas of focus, such as disaster preparedness, anticipatory action, biodiversity protection and climate security.
