EMG Nexus Dialogue 3: Environmental and Humanitarian Nexus

The third EMG Nexus Dialogue will focus on partnerships between the environmental and humanitarian sectors. Environmental disasters and degradation have contributed to the overwhelming number of internally displaced persons, migrants and refugees. The humanitarian sector must often react swiftly, whilst the environment timeline is often longer-term. There are possibilities to include the environment in operating procedures and training. Skills-sharing and institutional structures to foster joint work have been identified as entry points to this nexus.

A technical segment on the humanitarian and environment nexus will focus on theory and on the process of applying nexus thinking in practice. The day's events will close with a high level segment featuring a panel discussion.
