On November 30th 2016, the OECD launched the report, States of Fragility 2016: Understanding Violence, during the Second High-Level Meeting on Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-Operation (HLM2) in Nairobi, Kenya.
The report examines the trends and financial resource flows in fragile and conflict-affected states and economies, and aims to provide evidence and analysis of data in order to inform donor policies and ensure better results.
This year’s report focuses on the impact of violence; its impact and what should be done about it. The report explores key-related areas such as the relationship between fragility and violence, measuring financial flows to fragile areas, relations between aid and fragility.
Recommendations of the report seek to highlight where the development community can more effectively address fragility and violence, in the areas of policy, finance and programmes.
The report explores the link between ‘fragile states’, prone to political violence, extremism, conflict, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
AOAV was happy to be able to assist the OECD’s work through the provision of data for the report on improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and IED deaths and injuries in Nigeria.
