- Achieving greater revenue mobilisation can be an effective strategy for countries to break out of fragility.
- Evidence suggests that tax revenue has a larger impact on fragility dynamics than non-tax revenue.
- This brief summarises research on tax revenue trends and key challenges in mobilising tax revenue in fragile states and explores avenues for policy reform.
- Given the complexity of raising tax capacity in fragile settings, there is no one-size-fits-all solution but localised approaches that combine administrative and tax policy reform with appropriate sequencing can result in positive, sustainable results.
