Pilot Toolkit: Measuring and Monitoring in Fragility, Conflict and Violence (FCV) Environments

Pilot Toolkit: Measuring and Monitoring in FCV Environments is designed to assist World Bank Group (WBG) teams—and by extension support dialogue with partners and clients—to measure progress in countries impacted by FCV. The Toolkit also provides a WBG audience with information on monitoring and indicators that have emerged from the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding—a joint initiative between donors and the g7+ leaders of fragile and conflict-affected countries. The Toolkit includes a series of modules that provide practical advice, examples, and resource links on the following topics, which can be read from start to finish or as stand-alone products. The Toolkit also includes a searchable indicator database.
