Humanitarian-development coherence

A broad and complex topic that relates to many aspects of education, from policy and coordination to planning, financing, and programming. Coherence describes linkages between the two types of international assistance (humanitarian and development) in order to achieve more cost-effective, sustainable results for crisis-affected countries and populations. “Coherence” is an umbrella term that includes the humanitarian-development nexus, which refers more specifically to the meeting point of humanitarian and development approaches, and the triple nexus, which includes a peace-building dimension.
