Fit for Fragility? An Exploration of Risk Stakeholders and Systems Inside Sida

Nilima Gulrajani, Linnea Mills

Development cooperation to fragile and vulnerable environments involves different types of risk. The study Fit for Fragility? An exploration of risk stakeholders and systems inside Sida provides an analysis of how Sida works with management of these risks.

Great demands are put on Sida to achieve outcomes from its development cooperation in fragile and complex environments, which in turn, requires Sida to accommodate both accountability and flexibility. This study examines how Sida can meet the accountability demands, as well as the flexibility desires, within existing risk management systems and adapt these systems to overcome the many challenges fragile environments pose.
