Dear Sarah,


As discussed today, please find here the reminder message regarding the survey on progress and challenges in adopting the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus approach that can be shared with relevant staff. In this regard, please note that we have extended the deadline for responses until 14 July, to allow more input from your membership.



Over recent years, great progress has been made in strengthening linkages between humanitarian, development and peace activities, offering the perspective of enhanced coherence and complementarity. There are now many positive examples of thematic, sectoral and area-based nexus approaches, with useful lessons and potential for scaling up. At the same time, the DAC Recommendation on the Humanitarian-Development-Peace (HDP) Nexus has emerged as a central and comprehensive framework to incentivise and implement the nexus approach. This policy instrument calls for "prevention always, development wherever possible, humanitarian action when necessary". Yet, despite the progress, the full potential of the humanitarian-development-peace nexus remains far from fully utilised.


It is in this general context that the Secretariat of the International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF) is working on an interim progress report on the DAC Recommendation on the HDP Nexus. With this recommendation, the DAC instructs INCAF to review progress in its implementation. The interim progress report will serve as an input to a joint DAC - UN High Level Roundtable to be held in early 2022.



As part of the nexus progress review, and to complement existing research on the HDP nexus approach, this online survey (also available in French and Spanish – see below) has been designed to capture the practices of a diverse set of national and international stakeholders engaged in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. It will also provide a better understanding of perceptions about the implementation of the Nexus approach at country and headquarters level.


We kindly ask for your help in disseminating the survey, along with the fact sheet, to the largest possible number of respondents. Indeed, beyond the critical input from Adherents themselves, we wish to ensure a broader set of respondents, reflecting the geographic and organisational diversity of stakeholders involved in the nexus approach. The survey targets 4 types of respondents (with no limit on the number of respondents per organisation):



o   Representatives of the national authorities, with a lead mandate for managing and coordinating international partnerships, co-operation and assistance in support of sustainable development and/or recovery;

o   Heads of country presence or key operational/programming managers from bilateral and multilateral donors and their implementing partners across the nexus (DAC, UN, IFIs, national and international NGOs/CSOs);

o   Senior leadership or nexus focal points in the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office.



o   Heads of unit or nexus/fragility/stabilisation specialists from bilateral and multilateral donors and their implementing partners across the nexus (DAC, UN, IFIs, INGOs/CSOs).

In order to ensure as wide a response rate as possible, the questionnaire and information sheets are also available for offline completion in English, French and Spanish (see attached). These documents can also be downloaded from Google Drive:


If you have any further inquiries or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact: [email protected] and [email protected].


Many thanks in advance for your much appreciated support.

Kind regards,
