On April 8, 2015 in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire the African Develpment Bank and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) launched the 2015 OECD report on fragility. This report researched and authored by CIC's Sarah Hearn, David Steven, and Ben Oppenheim, contributes to the broader debate to define and implement post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It points out that addressing fragility in the new framework will be crucial if strides in reducing poverty are to be made. It argues in favour of proposed SDG 16 – promoting peaceful and inclusive societies – which aims to reduce violence of all forms.
