Financing Development in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States: Challenges and Opportunities

October 11, 2014 | 20:00 ET, 00:00 GMT

The Development Finance (DFi) vice presidency of the World Bank Group is hosting a panel discussion, Financing Development in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States: Challenges and Opportunitieson Friday, October 10 from 4 - 5:30 pm. The event aims to raise awareness of the need to ramp up financing in areas affected by conflict and fragility while considering the World Bank Group’s role as a convener of finance across a range of instruments.

The session will cover issues such as how development partners—traditional development funders, emerging economies, the private sector and the public sector—are working with the World Bank Group to make a difference in fragile and conflict-affected states, with a candid look at constraints and what can be done to overcome them. The conversation will also look at how fragile and conflict-affected countries can facilitate the inflow of financing.
