Reforming business environments amid fragility and conflict
Countries that are in highest need for private investment and economic growth are often also countries were it is most difficult to invest and to do business in. Not only do businesses in these countries struggle to access markets and obtain inputs, but their governments are also challenged to manage the Business Environment and economy. As a result, unemployment and poverty remain excessively high, contributing to further fragility and conflict. The ICR Facility works with public and private stakeholders in a variety of settings, including those characterised by fragility and conflict, to improve the Investment Climate and business environment in ACP countries.
