Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations (FCAS) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

Developing context-specific tailored support for FCAS and SIDS is a critical element in ADB’s approach to helping build resilience and secure lasting stability and development in the most vulnerable environments.

FCAS 2021 Annual Report

FCAS Annual Report

As more of the world’s extreme poor become concentrated in just a handful of countries classified as fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCAS), ADB increasingly recognizes that a one-size-fits-all approach is rarely suitable in such contexts. ADB’s Strategy 2030 calls for differentiated approaches to development work in FCAS, small island developing states (SIDS), and subnational pockets of poverty and fragility, where results have lagged. ADB has committed to improving its operations in such contexts.
