Getting From Here to There: Successful Implementation of the Global Fragility Act
5-12-2020| Elizabeth Hume, , ,
AfP and One Earth Future Foundation are pleased to release the final working paper on the implementation of the Global Fragility Act titled Getting From Here to There: Successful Implementation of the Global Fragility Act. The report was originally released in March for peer review and we received excellent comments. This feedback resulted in additional recommendations and in this draft we apply the data-driven methodology and list priority stabilization and prevention countries and regions. This report is still a working paper and will be released in a final form shortly.
Additionally, since the first release of the draft report in March, we know the COVID-19 pandemic is not just a health crisis, but essentially “stabilization in reverse” — upending governance, economies, and human and food security globally. The challenges facing the development, humanitarian and peacebuilding sectors globally are significant, complex, and interconnected. It is critical now more than ever to understand and begin applying the principles in the GFA that call for a multisectoral integrated approach that ensures peacebuilding and conflict prevention are at the center of the pandemic response strategy.
