Written by IFC staff in the field, they provide operational knowledge on what works and what doesn’t on topics including results measurement, gender issues, public-private partnerships, and business regulation reforms. The experience drawn together in this book shows that, when the public and private sectors pull together, and when the international community provides its full support, even the most fragile of fragile states can build a solid foundation for success.The lessons are aimed at those within the World Bank Group and beyond who want to learn from IFC’s experience supporting the private sector in Africa’s fragile states.
