Public Consultations to Inform the World Bank Group’s Systematic Country Diagnostic of the Economic and Social Situation in Senegal
The World Bank Group has started the preparation of its new strategy to strengthen its partnership with Senegal. This process involves two main phases: (i) the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) which aims to identify the country’s main development constraints and priorities; and (ii) the Country Partnership Framework which determines the priorities for the World Bank Group’s engagement with the country.
Launch of public consultations on the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD)
To inform the SCD, the World Bank Group has started public consultations to identify and analyze the most binding constraints and the main opportunities that Senegal needs to address to achieve the twin goals of extreme poverty reduction and shared prosperity. The consultations started on March with ministries and will continue until August 31, 2017. On July 22, consultations with a group of prominent CSOs have been organized in partnership with the NGO Council (CONGAD).
Apart from the government, a series of meetings are planned with other key stakeholders, including: parliamentarians, civil society, private sector, development partners, faith-based organizations, academia, unions, etc.
Online consultations are also organized (from June 28 to August 31 2017) to allow a wider participation.
