In line with the RG5 scoping paper on financing across the nexus, this set of advocacy messages aims to stimulate a dialogue with actors across the nexus, particularly development partners, in the spirit of working collaboratively with them to take this agenda forward, including through the work of fora such as the GHD, INCAF and the OECD2. The messages are complemented by a preliminary communication plan outlining where and when the messages could be amplified
A repeated theme in the dialogue on funding flexibility is the need to engage with donors to ensure consistency throughout the humanitarian system, not only between IASC members. The current IASC funding flexibility measures in the context of COVID-19 – endorsed by the IASC’s Operational Policy and Advocacy Group (OPAG) in June 2020 – apply to all pass-through funding in partnership agreements.
