Online seminar

Online, 07.12.2021


World Bank, German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

The Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice will present its ongoing work to develop a framework connecting social cohesion to community resilience in contexts of fragility, conflict and violence (FCV).

In this second seminar, World Bank will present and welcome feedback on preliminary insights from a framing paper which draws out some of the key operational implications of recent research into the determinants and measurement of social cohesion in FCV contexts.


  1. provide strategies for social cohesion diagnostics and tracking differences across contexts or time,
  2. explore mechanisms through which social cohesion patterns may exacerbate or mitigate FCV risks, and
  3. Provide an overview of the current evidence base on what works to strengthen social cohesion.

  • Audrey Sacks, Senior Social Development Specialist, The World Bank

Overall, the second session of the seminar series aims to connect the above insights to operational realities by featuring lessons learned from deploying a novel survey instrument to measure social cohesion across four development projects in Central Asia.
