Improving the provision of basic services for the poor in fragile environments: International Literature Review - Synthesis Paper

Research reports

Written by Sara Pavanello

This paper provides a rapid review of recent literature on international practice and experience in supporting pro-poor  service provision in fragile states, focusing on multilateral and bilateral donors’ approaches. The overall review consists of three sectoral reports (health, water/sanitation and education) together with this Synthesis. The purpose of the literature review was to inform the Office of Development Effectiveness’ evaluation of service delivery and contribute to a wider effort within AusAID to better understand donor engagement in fragile environments.
