The humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) nexus seeks to galvanize action in light of persistently high humanitarian needs and overlapping crises across economic, environmental, human, political, security, and societal dimensions - and particularly in the context of the '3Cs' of COVID-19, climate change and conflict. This brief proposes a set of priorities to: enhance HDP nexus action, explore the use of systemic risk management within the HDP nexus, and address the neglected disaster risk reduction-peacebuilding links within the HDP nexus, with systemic risk management as one of a number of entry points for enhancing collaboration. It suggests systemic risk management is a starting point for encouraging more comprehensive understanding of risk. Specific actions include establishing a cross-technical working group to explore the contribution of the DRR-peacebuilding intersection to the HDP nexus.
