U.S. Global Fragility Strategy Could Help Drive Reform, Coordination Of Development Initiatives In Fragile States, OECD Representative Says

Devex: Global fragility strategy could drive system reform if implemented properly, OECD says
“A new U.S. approach to fragile states provides an opportunity to spur widespread reform in the existing ‘fragmented international system’ that deals with fragile states, an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development representative said Monday. Jonathan Marley, who leads OECD’s ‘States of Fragility’ team, said levels of fragility — which were already deteriorating even before the COVID-19 pandemic — must now contend with the additional shocks of 2020. This drastically worse situation created in just a span of 12 months makes it all the more imperative that the forthcoming U.S. global fragility strategy is successful in a world where development strategies too often work completely independent of one another, he said…” (Welsh, 12/8).
