Fragility Forum 2020

March 2-4, 2020

Washington, D.C.


Dear Fragility Forum participants,

It is with regret that I am writing to let you know that out of an abundance of caution – and given recent developments relating to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on people and health -- the World Bank Group has decided to postpone the Fragility Forum due to take place in Washington, D.C. March 2-4, 2020. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this is likely to cause you.

Addressing fragility, conflict and violence is and will continue to be critical to our mission of ending extreme poverty.

We look forward to seeing you at the earliest opportunity and to our continued work together. We will be in touch once we confirm the new date but please rest assured, the work continues.

In partnership,

Franck Bousquet
Senior Director
Fragility, Conflict, & Violence Group
The World Bank
