The World Bank invites practitioners and policymakers from around the world to submit proposals for the Fragility Forum 2020 in Washington DC from March 2nd to 4th. The deadline is November 22nd, 2019.
The Fragility Forum is a high-level event organized by the World Bank Group which brings together policymakers and practitioners from the humanitarian, development, peace and security communities. The objective is to exchange innovative ideas and knowledge on the best development approaches in fragile and conflict-affected settings. The Fragility Forum 2020 will focus on implementation: the concrete approaches that are needed to maximize our collective impact and more effectively respond to dynamic, multidimensional, and global challenges affecting countries around the world. This biennial event has been held three times previously, in February 2015, March 2016 and March 2018.
Over three days, the Forum aims to provide an opportunity to harness the collective brain trust of stakeholders coming from government, international institutions, donor agencies, private sector, civil society, academia and media to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of development approaches to achieve lasting impact.
The deadline for submissions is November 22nd, 2019.
