This seminar brought together representatives of the French Development Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CDCS, DGM, DCSD) and Expertise France, who, together, are referred to as “Team France”. It contributed to making the group more coherent and complementary and recognizing the comparative advantages of its different members.

By encouraging exchanges between individuals, it helped to strengthen the ties between the different departments and institutions that are active in fragile contexts. A certain number of case studies were used to share lessons and experiences (Mali and Syria), and regular challenges in fragile and transition situations were identified.
