State Fragility is key to reaching the last Mile in ending Poverty

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Nov 30, 2017 | Brookings Institution, George Ingram, Jonathan Papoulidis

The OECD’s fragility framework identifies 56 countries as fragile, and by 2030, an estimated 80 percent of the world’s extreme poor will live in perilous places. The increasing needs of fragile states have disclosed the inadequacies of the international aid system. George Ingram and Jonathan Papoulidis emphasise in this report for the Brookings Institution that donors and other international partners must overhaul the aid system, giving new directions for adaptive development, fostering social capital, technological innovation, scaling operations; and improving coordination. For this, country-led institutional frameworks and coordination mechanisms between government and partners will be vital.
