The OECD’s States of Fragility Report 2018 was published under the guidance and Oversight of Nadine


The OECD’s States of Fragility Report 2018 was published under the guidance and Oversight of Nadine Gbossa, Head of Division Global Partnerships and Policies of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The OECD 2018 states of Fragility report introduces the new OECD Fragility Framework to better reflect fragility’s complexity and to highlight those contexts that require differentiated attention.


The New OECD’s methodology to measure the state of fragility in the world shows that, without action, more than 80% of the world’s poorest will be living in fragile contexts by 2030. This means that development actors across many sectors will need to better grasp the unique challenges of development in fragile contexts if the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals are to be met.

Key messages:

  1. We must recognise fragility if we want a better world.

  2. We will accept complexity and address all dimensions of fragility.

  3. We will invest in more and smarter aid in fragile contexts.

  4. We will step up our efforts on prevention, peace and security.

  5. We will invest in the data to better understand, anticipate and respond to multiple states of fragility.

  6. We will support the capacity of governments to deliver inclusive solutions to their own states of fragility.

  7. We will never lose sight of the end goal of delivering hope and better lives for all people in fragile contexts.


Methodology and complete data files can be found on GitHub.


States of Fragility Platform: OECD States of Fragility Platform allows users to analyse all 58 fragile contexts to address fragility along economic, environmental, political, security & societal dimensions.
