Cordaid in collaboration with the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS) and the The Bêkou Trust Fund of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DEVCO) will host a workshop during the European Development Days. The workshop will address key issues for implementing the Agenda 2030 in Fragile States, notably, the need to foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies whilst building innovative partnerships for development, including women, youth and the private sector. The international development policy community has over the past years recognized the flaws in traditional development assistance in fragile states. This recognition culminated in the 2011 New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States – a set of principles agreed between OECD donors and the g7+ group of fragile and conflict-affected states to align aid to “country-led and country-owned transitions out of fragility.”
