A new Water Global Practice Report on the link between water scarcity and fragility, conflict & migration – and related opportunities
Fragility challenges are on the rise worldwide. Two billion people live in countries where development outcomes are affected by fragility, conflict and violence and by 2030, half of the global poor will live in fragile and conflict affected states.
In 2015, more than 65 million people were displaced, most of them (about 95 percent) in developing countries.
The World Bank will be dramatically scaling up investments in fragile contexts, including water-related investments.
