Fragility in the World 2022
Highlights of the 2022 Index
"Fragility is something that must be addressed everywhere all at once, in both high income and low income countries, and core to that strategy must be a focus on social and political cohesion and inclusiveness."Nate Haken, Programs Director
The most worsened were Myanmar, Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Haiti, and Lebanon. Myanmar had a coup. Afghanistan had a violent change of power. Burkina Faso had a rise in violent extremism. Haiti’s president was assassinated. Lebanon had a deepening economic and political crisis, and a rise in protest and violence.
Uzbekistan, which started as the 22nd most fragile country in 2005, has been steadily improving for the last 17 years due to a series of political and economic reforms, and positive development outcomes, and was again among the most improved in 2021. Others which improved in 2021 include Cape Verde and Maldives, which rely heavily on tourism and shipping and were hard hit by the global shutdown in 2020. Like Uzbekistan, Cape Verde has steadily improved over the last decade, despite facing economic, political, and environmental challenges, due to growing democratic governance and inclusive development policies.

So far, risk of Nigeria election violence is in range with the last two cycles. Election-related fatalities are down while overall numbers of protests are up (mainly related to the cash shortages). Sources: ACLED and Nigeria Watch - PIND Peace Map @PindFoundation @P4P_NigerDelta
