To ask the Secretary of State for International Development which states he considers to be fragile. (285399)

The Department for International Development (DFID) is committed to increasing its efforts in fragile states, and so a list is needed to monitor our progress. DFID’s current list combines a mix of the World Bank’s Country Policy and Institutional Assessment (CPIA) index and the Fund for Peace’s Failed States Index (FSI). We will update the list every two years with the next update due in October this year.
