IEG Insights: Natural Resources in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States
This brief on ways to support fragile and conflict-affected states (FCS) in managing natural resources is based on a report by the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) entitled World Bank Group Assistance to Low-Income Fragile and Conflict-Affected States: An Independent Evaluation. For an in-depth assessment of strategies and assistance programs in FCS countries, the evaluation draws on empirical evidence from country program evaluations of Afghanistan, Liberia, and Timor-Leste and case studies of Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, and the Republic of Yemen.
