Some states lack the capability and/or the willingness to progressively promote the shared development of their citizens and are particularly vulnerable to external shocks and internal conflicts. These states have been described as “fragile states” (Naudé, 2012). Fragile and conflict-affected countries are home to 1.5 billion people. Approximately 70 percent of these fragile states have experienced conflict since 1989 with basic governance transformation estimated to take 20-40 years.
