The Nexus Resource Platform

Knowledge and Information Management via the Nexus Resource Platform

A dynamic and up-to-date knowledge and information system is a key prerequisite for implementation of Nexus measures and Nexus capacity building. The Nexus approach requires a high level of systemic analytical skills in different technical fields. Knowledge and information management is therefore an essential cross-cutting element of the Nexus Dialogue Programme.

The Global Nexus Secretariat actively stimulates the flow and exchange of information among all implementation partners. It collects and synthesises information, and compiles reports from Nexus regional dialogue events. It fosters the exchange of knowledge between different nexus regional dialogue partners as well as between different technical fields and sectors. This includes guidelines on Nexus implementation and publications on key elements of the Nexus approach as well as templates to help regional organisations to design and implement regional dialogue.

The Nexus Resource Platform, which was created after the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference, serves as the central provider of Nexus information for the public as well as a dedicated hub for the exchange of information and knowledge. It was re-launched at European Development Days in June 2016, with Nexus design and branding, and now serves as a neutral and inclusive agent. It represents regions actively engaged in Nexus regional dialogue (currently: Middle East and North Africa, and Latin America) and publishes additional dedicated Nexus content. A virtual co-working hub for real-time collaboration and project management is also available.

The Nexus Resource Platform is subject to ongoing strategic and technical development. The platform is available to other EU member states and other Nexus ambassador organisations. This is an open invitation to Nexus activists to join in and share.
