Description: Fragility poses a major threat to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and to sustaining peace – especially now that the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to leave the furthest behind even further behind. Today, fragile contexts are home to approximately a quarter (1.8 billion people) of the world’s population, but three quarters of the total number of people living in extreme poverty. If no action is taken to address fragility and its root causes, 2.2 billion people are at risk of being left behind in fragile contexts by 2030. Focusing on fragility now is an imperative for people, planet, prosperity, and peace.
States of Fragility 2020 sets a policy agenda for fragility at a critical juncture.
