Scoping Study on Business Environment Reform in Fragile and Conflict Affected States

This study considers the evidence on how to design effective business environment reform in fragile and conflict affected countries.

Abstract

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.
