The humanitarian, development, and nature conservation sectors have traditionally been independent in their efforts to bring positive change to the world. Often active in the same landscapes, they tend to stick to their own expertise and ways of working. But at a time where climate change is simultaneously affecting communities, economies, and ecosystems, bubbles need to be burst.

In this session during the European Development Days, representatives from the IUCN, DFCD/FMO Dutch Development Bank, and the Netherlands Red Cross will have a frank conversation: what is holding them back from working together? What are the challenges when they do collaborate? How can we reframe the relationship? The discussion will focus on the practical challenges and possible solutions when collaborating in shared landscapes.
