Humanitarian-Development-Peace (HDP) coherence aims to promote complementary collaboration across humanitarian, development, and peace actors in pursuit of a common agenda. In the two-year journey since the release of USAID's Programming Considerations for HDP coherence, IDEAL organized two learning events on HDP coherence, conducted desk reviews and key informant interviews, and worked closely with partners to collect evidence of practices across the food security community.

As a result of these efforts, and in continuation of the Knowledge Sharing Series on HDP Coherence (2022) and the Greater Horn of Africa Regional Knowledge Sharing Meeting (2023), IDEAL will convene stakeholders once more for a series of four online events taking place each month from March to June 2024. 

Each event will highlight new IDEAL publications, including practical studies and reports on HDP coherence in practice. Throughout the series, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about HDP coherence in a variety of contexts, and how peers have applied such principles in their activities and organizations.

  • March 6, 2024The first event in the series will be dedicated to key highlights and lessons learned from the Greater Horn of Africa Regional Knowledge Sharing Meeting which took place in Kenya in May 2023.
  • April 3, 2024 - In the second event, participants will learn from three case studies of activities in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, and Madagascar, where implementing partners made a concerted effort to share data and information across HDP pillars.
  • May 8, 2024 - The third event will share insights from IDEAL's study on multi-year humanitarian activities, focusing on recommendations from five recent examples.
  • June 5, 2024 - The last event of the series will highlight practical examples from case studies from activities affected by protracted crises or sudden-onset emergencies.
