In the early 2000s, the Bank was one of the first multilateral organizations to institutionalize the fragility agenda, highlighting the Bank’s longstanding engagement in addressing fragility and building resilience.
In twenty years, strategic, policy and programmatic shifts were undergone in line with increased understanding of the drivers of fragility.
In recognition of the various drivers of fragility, the Bank established a specific financing mechanism geared to assist regional member countries in fragile settings or in transition: The Transition Support Facility (TSF).
