  1. The African Development Bank hereby invites Consulting Firms to indicate their interest in the following Assignment: Governance and Fragility
  2. The services to be provided under the Assignment include: Fragility and crises lag development processes in many African countries. The statistics related to fragile situations are staggering. Worldwide two billion people live in countries where development outcomes are affected by fragility, conflict and violence; a great proportion of them are in African communities. Nearly fifty percent of the global poor is predicted to be living in fragile and conflict affected situations by 2030. At the same time, worldwide trends show that crises are becoming more complex, with contexts expanding from the traditional interstate conflicts to sociopolitical and economic triggers including volatile transitions in polarized political systems, state-periphery clashes, intrastate fragmentation, internationalized internal armed conflict, and extra systemic causes.

Strengthening core government institutions can catalyze resilience to shocks and crises. Strengthening core government functions is indispensable to build peace, restore confidence in state and bring sense of progress to citizens. Legitimate public-sector institutions and responsive government functions are critical to provide citizen security, justice and jobs is crucial to breaking the cycle of violence. Yet, in the aftermath of conflict, recreating a functioning state able to restore legitimacy, provide basic services, and ensure security to its citizens is a challenge. In particular, strengthening core government functions including local service delivery to better manage and deliver public resources is a key strategy to keep people out of poverty. At the end, it is the poorest and most vulnerable who needs most a responsive and inclusive public sector.

At the development, conflict and fragility global community, the importance for governance-informed development with a specific goal on just, peaceful and inclusive societies is recognized and clearly stated in the UN 2030 Agenda. Sustainable Development Goal 16 recognizes that sustainable development is not possible without peace and justice. However, appreciation of Core Government functions and it critical role has waned from international development practice and little has been published on public administration in fragile environments.
