The Fragility and Crisis Management (FCM) learning initiative was created in the eve of the annual meeting in June 2013 to further contribute to the exchanges and knowledge sharing among practitioners working in the field of development cooperation. It is led by the European Commission. The New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States calls for donors to move from a shared understanding of the context to joint approaches or coordinated action. An integrated approach to address the humanitarian-development-peace nexus or, more generally, the challenges of engaging in fragile contexts can only be a collective effort and endeavour. Collaborative actions and inter-agency cooperation in fragile states, will lead to even greater and more rapid tangible impacts on the ground.
