Fragile States

Fragile Situations

Around the world, poverty is increasingly concentrated in countries and regions affected by fragility and conflict, which intensify already acute challenges to development. Fragility and conflict can range from persistent domestic or cross-border violence to vulnerability in the face of natural disasters. The provision of basic services can support stabilization and lessen the impact of fragility and conflict within people’s lives. GPOBA has supported results-based approaches in fragile and conflict-affected situations, helping individuals gain access to basic services that otherwise they would go without.
