Scalable Solutions in Fragile States

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Jan 10, 2018 | Brookings Institution, Larry Cooley, Jonathan Papoulidis

In 2030, an estimated 80 percent of the world’s extreme poor will live in fragile states defined by violent conflict and rising vulnerability to natural disaster and climate change. Larry Cooley and Jonathan Papoulidis suggest in this report for the Brookings Institution that the paradigm of promoting economic growth and poverty reduction through infrastructure development, skills training, knowledge transfer and financing will not work in the hardest places. In fragile states one needs to overcome huge deficits in relationships, norms, and trust between communities, networks, and institutions.
