This document is prepared in response to a request made during the Ad hoc meeting of IASC Working Group (WG) on the IASC Task Team on Strengthening the Humanitarian Development Nexus in Protracted Settings (HDN TT), 5 Sept 2017. During this meeting, the IASC WG agreed to “undertake an initial review of the endorsed HDN Workplan by 31 December 2017 and establish the timetable for subsequent reviews as necessary”.


To this end, this document outlines key achievements and products by the HDN TT since its inception as background for this review. Given this specific request, this document is designed to provide additional granularity and information to the standard IASC subsidiary body progress reports. In the context of the restructuring of the subsidiary bodies below the IASC Principals, this report also serves the dual purpose as a handover document to the successor-body of the IASC HDN Task Team.
