Webinar on Learning from GEF Support in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations

News Date: 

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

Join the webinar on Learning from GEF Support in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations organized by the Environment, Fragility, and Conflict Community of Practice of the World Bank. The Independent Evaluation Office of the GEF will present its Evaluation of GEF Support in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations. The evaluation assessed the impacts of conflict and fragility on the design and implementation of GEF interventions at three scales: globally, at the country and regional levels, and at the project level. It also assessed the impact of efforts to make GEF interventions conflict sensitive. As of July 2020, the GEF has invested over $4.0 billion in countries affected by major armed conflict, comprising 29 percent of its global portfolio. The evaluation explored five critical pathways through which conflict and fragility affect GEF projects: physical insecurity, social conflict and mistrust, economic drivers, political fragility and weak governance, and coping strategies.

This session will present the negative and positive impacts of these five critical pathways, as well as conclusions and recommendations from the assessment. Several World Bank-implemented GEF projects covered in the evaluation will be used as examples.

The event will take place on May 12, 2021 from 7:30AM - 9:00AM EST
