Description: The Conflict Sensitivity Hub and SDG 16 are pleased to co-host a webinar on adaptive management with World Vision and ALNAP on Friday 12th June at 12.30 UK time. 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.
