Is Budget Support in Situations of Conflict and Fragility Responsive?

The launching of the new publication “Providing Budget Aid in Situations of Fragility” will take place in the context of the Annual Meetings on 9th June, from 11:00-13:00 in the Lisbon Congress Center. This new publication has emerged from discussions dating back to 2008 among some of the key actors in the provision of budget aid in situations of fragility. At the core of these discussions is a belief that improving the coordination and pooling of risk management in providing budget aid in these environments strengthens the multilaterals in being able to support the transition from fragility to resilience. The key premise behind this publication is a need for more predictable budget support aimed at addressing the root causes of fragility and conflict.

This is a joint publication of the World Bank and the African Development Bank. The International Monetary Fund and the European Commission were also important partners in the preparation of the paper.
