Social protection and basic services in fragile and conflict-affected situations

October 2012
Samuel Carpenter, Rachel Slater and Richard Mallett

Places affected by fragility and conflict perform consistently worse against a range of development indicatorscompared to their more stable counterparts. Yet, it is in these contexts that data are most limited, that evidence is of the poorest quality, and that programming and policy making tend to be least informed.

In an effort to generate better understanding and to identify useful lessons and findings for researchers and decision makers working on and in fragile and conflicted-affected situations, this review synthesises and assesses the available evidence on social protection and basic services (health, education and water) in fragile and conflict-affected situations.
