This scoping study provides a high level assessment of the existing evidence on the design and impact of business environment reform in fragile and conflict affected countries (FCAS)
The objectives of the study are:
- to provide a summary of the availability of evidence on how to design effective business environment reform in FCAS
- to identify the key complete or ongoing research on business environment reform in FCAS
- to identify the key gaps in the evidence that should be addressed as a matter of priority for the UK Department for International Development
- to make recommendations for further research to help build evidence around these gaps
Wherever possible, the study notes evidence in relation to the following areas:
- different functional areas of business environment reform such as licensing, commercial justice, land, access to finance, labour, tax and public-private dialogue.
- different types and levels of conflict and fragility.
- cross-cutting themes of gender, political-economy and environment.
