Year Published:

Policy Briefs

Humanitarian-development-peace (HDP) coherence aims to promote complementary collaboration across humanitarian, development, and peace actors in pursuit of a common agenda. Its goal is to maximize impact and sustainability of programs across different kinds of assistance and to reduce the need for humanitarian assistance (HA) over time.

This document represents USAID's best, most current thinking on the topic of HDP coherence. These programming considerations share both what USAID has learned in its pursuit of HDP coherence as well as promising practices and ideas that USAID has identified through a consultation process with its partners. 

In February 2022, the USAID Resilience Leadership Council, in partnership with ResilienceLinks, hosted a learning webinar on the recently released product featuring USAID and global partner representatives.

From June through September 2022, IDEAL will convene humanitarian and resilience practitioners for a Knowledge Sharing Series (KSS) on HDP Coherence! This series of online peer-to-peer events will explore how to implement more coherent and holistic programming that addresses the increasingly complex crises we face around the world.
