Ethiopia Country Partnership Framework

The World Bank Group is Seeking Your Input on Its Strategy for Ethiopia

The World Bank Group is preparing a Country Partnership Framework (2017-2021) to guide its support to Ethiopia's development efforts. We would like to hear your views regarding Ethiopia's priorities and the role the World Bank Group can play in helping the country achieve its development goals.

The first phase of stakeholder consultations were held for the preparation of the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD). This was a forward-looking exercise aimed at identifying those binding constraints that keep the country from reaching its full potential. With the SCD completed, the WBG is further consulting with stakeholders to focus the discussion into an operational prism, i.e. how the World Bank Group can best support Ethiopia in addressing its development challenges.

Through in-person discussions and online input, we are welcoming views of Ethiopia's stakeholders, including the Ethiopian diaspora, on the country's development agenda as well as recommendations on new opportunities and challenges.

SHARE YOUR VIEWS – Let us know what you think!
The online consultation period is open from August 3, 2016, to September 8, 2016.
Here are some questions to get started:

  • The World Bank Group's goals are to end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity. To contribute to these goals in Ethiopia, in which three priority areas should the Bank focus its attention and resources on the next four years?
  • Which groups should the World Bank Group work more closely with in order to improve development results in Ethiopia?
  • Which policies or investments would help better achieve the highest return in terms of employment creation and productivity growth, creating more opportunities for those at the bottom of the income distribution and contributing to social and environmental sustainability?
