Fragile States and Situations
DFID and OECD define fragile states by their
(in)ability to provide basic services to thepoor
as a result of lack of political will or weakcapacity, or both.
CIDA, UNDP, and USAID define fragile states bythe
extent to which they are (un)able toprovide basic functions for poverty reductionand development
, including territorialauthority and political legitimacy.
The World Bank defines fragile situations in terms of a
debilitatingcombination of weak governance, weak policies, and weak institutions
.
To ADB, states are fragile when their
structures lack the political willand/or capacity to provide the basic functions needed for povertyreduction, development, and to safeguard the security and humanrights of populations
