Concept Note - Realisation of the SDGs in Countries Affected by Conflict and Fragility: the Role of the New Deal. This note is intended for national actors and their international partners operating in countries affected by fragility and conflict. Its purpose is to support their efforts to realise the 2030 Agenda, including but not limited to SDG 16, using the principles of the New Deal. [Also available in: Fr ]
This note presents a basic guide to support the implementation of country compacts, as defined in the New Deal.
This guide aims to support the development and implementation of compacts, as defined in the New Deal. It is not meant to be a step-by-step guide, but rather to help policy makers and practitioners to consider key principles, issues, and design elements to consider when involved in a compact development process. They are drawn from past experiences, existing studies, and inputs from development partners and g7+ countries. They represent the general characteristics and transition compacts, as they have existed thus far, as well as some lessons learned and good practice.
This note sets out the rationale and benefits of a ‘spectrum approach’ to fragility, and the purpose and use of country-specific fragility spectrum and indicators (developed through fragility assessments).
This guidance note seeks to support the implementation of New Deal fragility assessments in fragile and conflict-affected states. It should not be seen as a strict step-by-step guide. Rather, it provides guidance to support context-specific processes; elements described herein should always be tailored to local needs and priorities. This guidance is based on the experience, lessons and insight generated by g7+ countries that piloted implementation of the fragility assessment between 2012 and 2013
This paper outlines options to support country-level implementation of the New Deal. These include: 1) options for specific, short-term support aimed to kick-start implementation and/or to provide targeted technical or other assistance on specific aspects of New Deal implementation, and; 2) options for longer-term, continued support aimed to build in-country capacity, within Government, civil society, and development partners to manage the overall implementation of New Deal provisions. In addition, the paper highlights areas of global support, and presents options for how implementation could be financed.
This brief highlights options for possible roles of lead development partner/s in pilot countries, within their headquarters, and through international fora. These suggestions are based on the New Deal commitments, ongoing experience, and discussions within the New Deal implementation working group (Juba, December 2012).
This document provides a preliminary guide to support the country-level implementation of the New Deal for International Engagement in Fragile States. Further guidance in particular areas of the New Deal might be developed based on initial experience and lessons learned during 2012.
