Strengthening Linkages Across the Triple Nexus

Today’s reality is that communities do not move neatly on a continuum from crisis to resilience. Shifts back and forth caused by political instability, climate disasters and conflicts can take a stable environment like Ukraine into crisis overnight.

Global Communities believes meaningful solutions lie at the intersections that link humanitarian, development and peace-building programs – also known as the triple nexus. Our unique expertise allows us to leverage learnings for integrated programs and respond to rapidly changing circumstances.

In 2022, we responded to the outbreak of war in Ukraine by adjusting existing programs built on strong relationships with local governments and civil society to deliver immediate, lifesaving assistance. We also continued to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in countries around the world, including the United States.

In Ethiopia, we partnered with pastoralists to build resilience and regenerate grasslands to improve food and water security, pivoting along the way to overcome obstacles of all kinds. We responded to climate-driven environmental disasters in Guatemala with an eye toward building resilience and a strong local economy. In the Middle East, we partnered with youth to build a future full of hope and opportunity and worked with communities who have faced a decade of war to meet their daily needs.
