Fragility to Resilience
Food for the Hungry (FH) was honored to take part in the Fragility Forum 2022, a biennial event organized by The World Bank Group.
Jonathan Papoulidis, Global Director of Fragility and Resilience at Food For The Hungry, spoke Monday, March 7, as part of an esteemed panel of experts on the subject of Adaptive Management in Fragile Contexts: Navigating Uncertainty in Hard Places.
The Fragility Forum brought together policymakers and practitioners from the humanitarian, development, peace and security communities; public and private sector; academia; and civil society to explore how the international community can best support countries affected by fragility, conflict, and violence.
The global response to these threats is constantly evolving to adapt to ongoing changes in the international context.
As complexity and uncertainty become the new normal, the Fragility Forum 2022 explored how the international community can best support countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence in a dramatically changing global landscape.

For more resources, current articles by Papoulidis examine key facets of adaptive management in fragile contexts.
One is statebuilding, which is meant to promote more inclusive and peaceful political settlements and ensure the state is responsive to societal needs and expectations, including for the most vulnerable populations. For more information on this topic, see Papoulidis’ article.
A second is developing country platforms, which have been promoted by organizations ranging from the G20 to the OECD, UNDP, and the World Bank. For more information on the importance of country platforms in fragile states, read this article co-authored by Papoulidis.
