Conflict and Shocks: How can we build resilience in the face of increasing fragility and vulnerability?

Violent conflict has increased after decades of relative decline. Direct deaths in war, numbers of displaced populations, military spending, among others, have all surged since the beginning of the century (World Bank, 2018). Fragile and conflict affected states show the slowest progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (ODI, 2018), demonstrating that conflict could be one of the biggest hurdles in achieving our 2030 aspirations. More specifically, the recent increase in number of people suffering from acute food insecurity has been attributed to an increase in conflict and extreme weather events (FSIN, 2018).

Report on Resilience: Evidence and Action Side event, at HLPF18

In an increasingly turbulent and unpredictable world new approaches to development are needed to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We face a new reality: disasters and shocks are occurring more frequently and chronic stresses are lasting longer. We need to ensure that all people, especially in developing countries, have prosperous lives and are resilient to these shocks and stresses. Recognising this challenge, the UK, Sweden, Germany and Uganda, with the Global Resilience Partnership, sponsored a side event at the High Level Political Forum.
