The g7+ was founded in 2010 in response to the gaps between current development assistance and the unique needs of countries in fragile situations. The g7+ promotes peace building and state building as the foundations for sustainable development and advocates for country-owned and country-led processes. As a part of this goal, the g7+ is pleased to share our history from our own perspective in “Strength in Fragility.” This oral history includes the development experiences of g7+ member countries, the common challenges faced by countries in fragile situations, achievements of the g7+ to date, and our priorities moving forward.
