Reducing the risk of fragility and conflicts is a top development priority nowadays. Fragility, conflict and violence are considered a critical development challenge that threatens every effort to strengthen shared prosperity. In response to an increasingly complex fragility landscape, development actors are seeking a broader approach to help societies overcome this challenge, aiming at addressing sources of instability and building resilience. Calls for action along different levels of emergency assistance and long-term development initiatives are needed in order to address the challenges of fragility, conflict and violence.According to the World Bank, by 2030, almost half of the world's poor will be concentrated in countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence, going up from 17 percent today.The gathering will cover topics about financing for peace, innovations in tackling fragility and lessoned learned from the refugee crisis focusing on conflict and instability, as a critical challenge for the global development agenda.In a world of growing global risks, conflicts drive 80 percent of all humanitarian needs.
