State Fragility Initiative

Examining causes, conditions, and consequences of state fragility

Recent Studies

The Center recently completed a study commissioned by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation to identify the locations where fragility and climate risks co-occur in significant ways around the world. The study was designed to support USAID in further integrating fragility and climate considerations into U.S. foreign policy, designing development policies and programs in fragile states, and engaging in a variety of multilateral initiatives. Browse the study’s data and maps, global analysis of fragility and climate patterns, and country-focused briefs exploring how these patterns take shape in different contexts.
