The Humanitarian-Development Nexus

The UN Secretary General’s report entitled, "One Humanity: Shared Responsibility," asks us to “transcend the humanitarian-development divide” and change people’s lives by moving from delivering aid to ending need. Displaced persons should not be seen as a humanitarian “burden," but rather as a development opportunity. Panellists discuss concepts and actions that address the humanitarian-development nexus at this seminar organized by the Johns Hopkins Centre for Humanitarian Health.
