Fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV) is a global challenge. By 2030, almost 60 percent of the world's poor will live in countries classified as fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCS). Chronic instability, civil wars, the global shock of the pandemic, and continued climate disasters have created a complex landscape of intertwined risks, reversing hard-won development gains. Not only are these dynamics affecting people’s lives within these countries, but they also have destabilizing transboundary effects that compel all of us to think and act in new ways.
The Fragility Forum 2024: Adapting and Innovating in a Volatile World, will provide an opportunity for those working in and on FCV, including those in the development, humanitarian, government, civil society, private sector, research, and security communities, to exchange experiences, and examine the success and failures of developmental interventions in countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence. The aim is to learn lessons and seek adaptive and innovative approaches best suited to the fast, evolving global FCV landscape.
