IDA20 Special Theme : Fragility, Conflict and Violence (English)

The pandemic and its socio-economic impacts are aggravating existing Fragility, Conflict, and Violence (FCV) risks and increasing poverty, with an estimated 23 million additional extreme poor in Fragile and Conflict-affected Situations (FCS) in 2020. By 2030, it is estimated that up to two-thirds of the world’s extreme poor will live in FCV-affected situations. The COVID-19 crisis is putting added pressure on already weak health, education andsocial protection systems. FCV disproportionally impacts women and girls and the most vulnerable people and communities, including forcibly displaced populations. Humanitarian needs have increased sharply and 34 million people across 17 countries, the majority of which are IDA FCS,are at risk of experiencing famine in 2021. Many IDA FCS also have weak core government functions and public finances, making them less resilient to respond to FCV challenges, crises and shocks, including pandemics and climate shocks.
