Year established



OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC)

The International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF) is a unique decision-making forum which brings together diverse stakeholders to support development outcomes in the world’s most challenging situations. Based on a whole-of-government approach, INCAF adopts an inclusive approach to its work by engaging with multiple policy communities and partner countries. INCAF was established in 2009 as a subsidiary body of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC). INCAF works in close partnership with the UN, NATO, the World Bank and other bilateral and multilateral agencies dealing with conflict and fragility.

It facilitates co-ordination between them and provides a platform for sharing experiences. INCAF also brings together providers of South-South co-operation through consultation and regular dialogue.

More widely, INCAF helps development partners, international organisations and partner countries to respond to conflict and fragility by working on cutting-edge policy and programming and by acting as a dialogue facilitator between development partners and partner countries.

It also works with diverse stakeholders including: civil society organisations, development partners, governments, international organisations and partner countries (fragile states in particular).
