Financing for Development - g7+ information note

Fragile states were not specifically considered in the Monterrey Financing for Development (FfD) conference. Fragile states have found it the hardest to make progress in achieving the MDGs. Two thirds of poor people will be in fragile states by 2030. Fragile states are therefore critical to ensuring that the Financing for Development conference paves the way for a successful summit on the Sustainable Development Goals. [Read more in PDF]

g7+ Policy Note on Fragile-to-Fragile Cooperation

The g7+ has launched the initiative of Fragile-to-Fragile cooperation (F2F cooperation). The purpose of this document is to frame and explain the concept of Fragile-to-Fragile Cooperation. The concept will serve as an umbrella under which the g7+ will undertake a number of activities. This framing will guide the planning of specific activities by the g7+, and will also serve as an invitation to development partners to support the g7+ in the operationalization of the concept. F2F cooperation is the support g7+ can provide to each other, including through peer learning, capacity building, experience sharing and knowledge generation. It provides a framework through which the g7+ can make optimal use of its own resources, as well as channel support from external parties to its priorities for learning and expressing solidarity. The policy note is available in both [download English-PDF] and French.


Launch of new booklet: 
'Natural Resources in g7+ Countries'
As part of the g7+'s pioneering efforts to improve understanding, peer-learning and support between countries affected by conflict, the g7+ Secretariat is proud to launch the report booklet on Natural Resources in g7+ countries [NRM Booklet]. This booklet offers an overview of natural resources in g7+ countries. It provides key information on the known resources in each country, the main extractive industries, the legal and fiscal frameworks in place for managing natural resources and issues related to governance and transparency. The booklet forms part of an emerging g7+ research and peer-learning programme, an important part of our 'Fragile-to-Fragile' or F2F cooperation. It is designed to be a practical source of knowledge-sharing on extractives, and will be continuously updated and developed over time. The report is available in both [download English-PDF] and French.
