Conflict and fragility continue to pose a critical challenge to achieving progress, stability, and peace.Exiting strategies from fragility is a global development priority.In March 2019, the Global Economy and Development Program at Brookings Institution released a report that assesses the findings of a survey of 93 Global Development Leaders who were interviewed during 2018; The survey tackled three main areas: how the international development landscape is changing, how the global development organizations are adapting to this change, and what do they predict in the short and long-term.Development leaders reflected on the uncertainty over the prospects of alternative sources of finance.The survey revealed significant transformation and the existence of chaos in the global development sector. Previous models of humanitarian relief are becoming inadequate and the development community must survey more sustainable methods that go beyond meeting short-term basic needs to more sustainable development approaches.There are common attributes of state fragility. This may include a wide range of state failure risk elements such as increased corruption, criminal behavior, inequalities, group grievances, uneven economic development, brain drain, factionalized elites, decreased state legitimacy, inability to provide reasonable public services, extensive displacement of the population and institutionalized discrimination.
