Over 15 million people in the Middle East and North Africa region have become displaced over the past few years, with a growing presence in middle income countries (MIC). This influx is one manifestation of fragility in the region. Host countries are providing a public good to the world by delivering services to the refugee population.
The meeting will be an opportunity for exchanging ideas between Middle Income Countries with experiences of fragility.
Participants will discuss possible solutions to the challenges posed by fragility in the middle income country context. The potential for development interventions—both financial and technical—to increase the resilience of MICs will also be addressed. Establishing indicators and early identification of fragility in MICs could enable the international community to intervene proactively with fragility risk mitigation and prevention measures.
