With the theme of aid in the context of conflict, fragility and the climate emergency, The 2020/2021 Reality of Aid Report aims to contribute to the overall body of work on the subject. The Triple Nexus tackles how humanitarian action, development and peace efforts intersect to improve development interventions, especially in conflict affected and fragile states. The 2019 DAC Recommendation on the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus, the Grand Bargain and the New Way of Working are among those that provide substantial framework at the level of principles, programming and operations – all of which put considerable pressure on donor countries to demonstrably show commitment to practice the Nexus approach in overall development policy and planning.
