More than 1.2 billion people live in areas where the daily reality of war, violence and fragility robs them of access to education, public services, and other pathways to prosperity. The number of global poor living in fragile and conflict states is projected to double by 2030.
To end extreme poverty by 2030, the world needs to address the challenges posed by fragile, conflict-affected and violent states.
