Policy brief. GPE's work in countries affected by fragility and conflict


  • 28 GPE partner developing countries are classified as countries affected by fragility and conflict. That’s 43% of all of GPE partner countries.
  • 11 transitional education plans have been implemented with GPE support between 2012 and September 2016.
  • 4 countries have benefited from accelerated funding, totaling more than US$22 million.
    • CAR: US$3,690,000
    • Chad: US$6,955,170
    • Somalia (Federal government): US$1,380,000
    • Yemen: US$10,000,000

    GPE has provided a foundation for coordination and dialogue among development and humanitarian actors in countries as diverse as Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen. Through its Operational Framework for Effective Support in Fragile and Conflict-affected States, and its Guidelines for Accelerated Support in Emergency and Early Recovery Situations, GPE has successfully promoted coordinated decisions about the best way to utilize resources in crisis settings, such as shifting them to non-governmental providers for direct service provision during acute crises.

    According to a 2013 Brookings study, GPE has introduced “modalities that not only allow GPE to support new countries affected by fragility and conflict entering the partnership but also continue supporting the education needs of young people when stable countries experience crises and disasters.”
