World Bank Group Strategy for Fragility, Conflict, and Violence 2020–2025

The consultations will focus on gathering perspectives in countries faced with diverse FCV challenges, as well as in countries that support World Bank Group programs in FCV settings. They will aim to capture lessons learned and best practices for reducing fragility, conflict and violence and promoting peace and prosperity. Inputs gathered from representatives of government, civil society organizations, international partners, the private sector and others, will be integrated into a comprehensive operational strategy focused on addressing the drivers of fragility and maximizing the World Bank Group’s support for affected people and communities. The development of a World Bank Group FCV strategy comes at a pivotal time: By 2030, at least half of the world’s poor will live in fragile and conflict-affected settings. The strategy will therefore support the World Bank Group’s goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity. The strategy is being developed jointly by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the World Bank. It will cover the period from 2020 to 2025.
