Re-building Core Government Functions CGFs which are responsive and legitimate is a critical process in a country transitioning out of conflict.

Addressing this gap in understanding is increasingly important in light of the continuing trend towards the concentration of poverty in FCAS. The report is part of a multi-country research project commissioned by UNDP that seeks to understand whether and how prioritising public spending on CGF can lead to more successful transitions towards peace in fragile and conflict-affected countries. It aims to do this by comparing the experience of different FCAS countries and assessing the extent to which these transitions have been facilitated or not by increased investment to rebuild CGF.
