Conflict, fragility and resilience

About INCAF

 

International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF)


We make sure that those furthest behind are part of our shared tomorrow.

 

States affected by conflict and fragility are the most challenging operating environments for development actors. INCAF, a part of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC), is a forum to exchange knowledge on engagements in such contexts, improve policy and programming responses and track results. As such, INCAF works together to deliver on our common global promise – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – in states affected by fragility and conflict, using the lens of the New Deal and the Stockholm Declaration.

 

What is INCAF?

INCAF is a unique network of DAC members and key multilateral agencies working in fragile situations. It provides a “safe space” where members can share best practices and face up to the very real challenges of delivering results in contexts affected by fragility and conflict. This way, INCAF delivers on promises to make aid more effective, and thus contributes to a more stable world.

 

How we work

Through lesson learning and promoting good practice among its members, INCAF works to achieve policy commitments and behaviour change among international actors in headquarters and at field level. INCAF works with diverse stakeholders including civil society organisations, international organisations, OECD and non-OECD governments from partner countries (of fragile states in particular). Together with the g7+ group of fragile and conflict-affected states and member organisations of the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS), INCAF is one of the three constituencies of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) (see figure below). For a full list of INCAF members, see below. The INCAF Secretariat is located at the OECD.

 

Two Task Teams facilitate the work of INCAF. The Implementation and Reform Task Team (IRTT) seeks to stimulate the reform of donor policies and practices to ensure delivery of existing agreements and commitments. It also monitors member performance in implementing existing agreements, such as the New Deal and the Stockholm Declaration.

The Knowledge and Policy Task Team (KPTT) is INCAF’s ‘knowledge laboratory’. It intends to incubate new ideas and develop new areas of research on peacebuilding and statebuilding, generate evidence on what works and what doesn’t, and to contribute to wider policy debates. KPTT also supervises the preparation of States of Fragility Report, an OECD flagship publication.
