The 2019 World Development Report (WDR) will look at the changing landscape of work and explore the implications for future labor markets. Increasing automation, the rise of the gig economy, and shifts in global trade and investment, as well as demographic change and urbanization, are all shaping demand and supply for different skillsets. The Report will analyze the impact of these forces, showcase data on returns to experience, and consider how individuals, companies and governments can respond. Consultations will open in February 2018 upon release of the briefing materials. More information will be posted on the Consultation Hub in the coming weeks.

Consultations for Country Partnership Framework in Iraq (2018-2023)

1 of 1
#IraqConsultations: Share your Views to Help Rebuild Your Country

The World Bank is interested in hearing your opinion on its strategy for engagement in Iraq. As we prepare a Country Partnership Framework for the period FY18–FY23, we would like to hear your views on the priorities for development and how the World Bank can play a better role in helping the country to rebuild.

The Country Partnership Framework (CPF) is a partnership plan and the main tool guiding the WBG's support for Iraq’s development program. It starts from the country's own development goals, and it is built around widespread consultations and engagement with all stakeholders in society, from civil society organizations to individuals in local communities.

We invite you to take part in these consultations via face-to-face meetings and take our online surveys. You can also email for further information.


More than 11 million Iraqis are currently considered to need some form of humanitarian assistance. Agricultural production has declined by 40%, undermining the country’s food sufficiency. Because of this dire situation, we would like to focus on opportunities for the World Bank to support the country.

This consultations and engagement process we are launching includes both face-to-face meetings and surveys online and on social media to enable participation by a wide range of people.
