Nexus for Sexual and Reproductive Health Briefing Paper


Strengthening the humanitarian-development divide was identified as a top priority at the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, given the protracted nature of crises and limited development to sustain gains and maintain peace. The New Way of Working has emerged as a framework towards achieving collective outcomes that reduce need, risk, and vulnerability over time based on the comparative advantage of the many actors that work in the humanitarian-development continuum. Emergency preparedness and recovery—including for sexual and reproductive health—are two entry points within the crisis continuum that provide opportunities for humanitarian and development actors to explicitly collaborate with communities, civil society organizations, and governments, to build local and national resilience to mitigate impact, improve response, and facilitate effective recovery.
