Fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV) present critical development challenges that threaten efforts to end extreme poverty. The World Bank Group has launched its first-ever Strategy for Fragility, Conflict and Violence (2020-2025) and is significantly scaling up its FCV support in both low and middle-income countries.
The Independent Evaluation Group is building evidence and promoting learning about effective approaches in fragile contexts through a series of evaluations and reviews. IEG seeks to cover critical aspects of the World Bank Group’s FCV Strategy, to inform its implementation.
Existing IEG resources related to fragility can be viewed below.
