The COVID-19 and Fragile States: Promoting Resilient Recovery for the Most Vulnerable Communities



This event will take stock of the economic and social impact of COVID-19 in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCS), and identify pathways for progress toward resilient recovery. Speakers will reflect on responses to the pandemic and on opportunities to scale up joint multilateral support in the most fragile settings, where climate risks, food insecurity, and active conflict often overlap. The event will also highlight the Fund’s strong commitment to FCS – particularly through the development of an FCS Strategy to further enhance and tailor Fund’s support to FCS facing complex and unique challenges.
