Fragility Forum 2024
Organized over three days in a hybrid format, the FF2024 will offer a diverse range of sessions, including high-level panel discussions and technical sessions organized around the four thematic areas. Complementing these sessions, the FF2024 will offer creative and interactive learning events to engage participants, promote networking, highlight successes, and showcase innovations. These include talk-shows to showcase entrepreneurs, artists, and athletes, lightning talks around innovations, chai chats on ideas that have worked and ready to be scaled-up, and a technology segment that will showcase cutting-edge tools and techniques. There will be an opportunity to network and chat informally in the FCV café. Look out for sessions and to engage, learn, share, and be inspired.
To complement the Forum, deep-dive sessions are being organized on March 1, 2024, for partners to organize deep-dive sessions, bilateral meetings, or networking.

Climate, peace and security: operationalizing the Declaration on Climate, Relief, Recovery, & Peace (CRRP)
Registration: to participate, please register both on Zoom and on the event's website
Location: Online or at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington D.C. (more details on in person attendance to come)
This session will encourage reflection and discussion on financing and programming peace-positive climate action/climate-informed peacebuilding. To do so, it will present the experience of the climate, peace and security as well as environmental peacebuilding programming supported by the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF), based on the findings of the first Thematic Review on climate security and peacebuilding (2023), and draw out learnings for future investments in climate-security efforts in fragile and conflict affected contexts for international climate finance institutions. Building on the outcomes of COP28, this session will provide the frame for a first discussion around operationalizing the Climate, Relief, Recovery & Peace (CRRP) Declaration, bringing together key organizations that endorsed it and hence agreed to help put it into practice (including the WB, DPPA and adelphi, among others). It also builds on some of the early lessons from the UN Climate Security Mechanism (CSM) and conversations commenced at the Berlin Climate Security Conference (BCSC) in Nairobi and Berlin in 2023, as well as on the outcomes of a series of joint trainings on climate, peace and security programming and finance.
The discussion will be guided by three experts:
- Ms. Diane Scheinberg, Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO)/Peacebuilding Fund (PBF)
- Ms. Paule Juneau, United Nations Environment Programme Haiti
- Mr. Mohammed Fadiga, FAO sub-regional office for West Africa and Sahel
Moderated by Dr. Beatrice Mosello, adelphi
