Safran, Patrick


As the Institutional Focal Point for Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations, I have developed the Approach to Engaging with Weakly Performing Countries (now called Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations). Currently, I lead the work on fragility and conflict and I support operations in states of fragility. Previously, I have developed the Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy and the Strategic Approach for Information and Communication Technology.
