Tackling the interrelated issues causing fragility in a changing and increasingly uncertain global environment represents a major challenge. ADE, specialised in evaluation, provides outstanding research-led work on fragility, conflict, peace and security issues. ADE also supports lesson learning, which has played an important role in advancing peace processes across the globe. We apply “Do No Harm” principles in all our activities.
Over the last decade, development agencies have moved towards a comprehensive approach to foster conflict-sensitive and collaborative action across the conflict cycle. This recognises the need for a multi-dimensional process bringing together humanitarian aid, conflict prevention, security and development, as well as operationalising greater coherence and coordination across complex sets of actors. More recently, the need to build state and societal resilience has become a priority when responding to fragility and instability. The practical application of this integrated approach remains a challenge. Ultimately, real integration requires “true” change in each organisational culture.
