Key Theses, Thoughts and Ideas
Looking at the case study of Nigeria three structural challenges were highlighted in the debate: 1) Fragility and Security, 2) Economy and Social Challenges and 3) Governance. In order to address humanitarian and security issues, conflict prevention needs to be mainstreamed.
One important aspect concerning the HDP Nexus is the recognition of different logics, instruments and theories of change. Thus, a requirement for successful impact is the development of a common understanding of key principles and context dynamics.
From a practical point of view, one challenge for joint outcomes is the coordination among different departments and partners. There is a need to improve complementarity and coherence on the ground.
In the case of Nigeria, the HDP dimension needs to be strengthened to promote aspects of human rights and civil society participation. A key element to achieve this is continuous dialogue and exchange between international organizations, NGOs and the civil society.
