This paper aims to highlight the relevance of cooperation between United Nations agencies and Islamic actors in building the humanitarian-development-peace nexus. The current approach is not able to deal with protracted crises. The improvement of this triple nexus requires the inclusion of regional and local organizations in a two-way effort: from one side, the UN agencies should rethink the political Agenda and the field approach in Islamic countries. On the other side, Islamic actors should include in their interventions key elements for implementing and financing it. In this sense, Islamic financial tools and blended finance can contribute to fill the resources allocation gap and improve dialogue among different stakeholders.
