Sustaining Peace work-stream and partners host webinar

The PaRD Sustaining Peace (SDG 16) work-stream and Conflict Sensitivity Hub co-host a webinar on adaptive management with World Vision and Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action (ALNAP) with focus on Democratic Republic Congo on Friday, 12 June at 13:30 hrs. CEST.

The title of the webinar is: Navigating the Nexus in Uncertain Times: Lessons on adaptive management from The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

World Vision will present its experiences of working across the humanitarian-development nexus using adaptive management approaches, with examples from the DRC. At the heart of this approach is a focus on context analysis and how this enables programming to be adaptive and flexible. This work was started pre COVID-19 and World Vision speakers will explain how this continues to be utilised as an approach during COVID-19 and what further adaptations have been needed. ALNAP will also present alongside World Vision, on the findings from its recent research Ready to Change? Building flexibility into the triple nexus, which looked at agencies interested in working in the nexus and that seek to understand what flexibility looks like, what it can achieve in such contexts, and how it can be achieved.

World Vision’s DRC work on adaptive management was included in this study and ALNAP will reflect on how these key findings remain relevant in light of COVID-19. Chair: Maya Assaf, World Vision International Director of Peacebuilding and Conflict Sensitivity Speakers Helen Barclay-Hollands, World Vision International Director for Humanitarian Programming and Information Management Sarah Pickwick, World Vision UK Senior Conflict Adviser Christian Kasereka, World Vision Democratic Republic of Congo Acting Operations Manager for Eastern zone Tilly Alcayna, Independent Consultant/Director of Research at Futureproof-Ideas and author of ALNAP publication “Ready to Change? Building flexibility into the triple nexus”.
