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 Chile Country Partnership Framework (CPF) 2019-2024
The World Bank Group is currently preparing in coordination with the Government of Chile the new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for Chile for 2019 to 2024. The CPF will guide the Group’s program for the country and gauge its effectiveness in terms of poverty reduction and boosting shared prosperity.
The CPF lays out the main country development objectives that WBG aims to help the country achieve, and proposes a selective and flexible program of WBG interventions for this purpose. The objectives are selected to reflect Government priorities, main development constraints of the country (based on analytical foundations discussed in the WBG Systematic Country Diagnosis SCD) and the WBG’s comparative advantage.
The process of CPF preparation involves consultations with different stakeholders, including the government, international financial institutions, civil society and private sector representatives, to exchange views on the country’s development opportunities and how the World Bank Group can help address them.
Consultations include both face-to-face meetings in Punta Arenas and Santiago, as well as online consultation, which starts on June 12th, 2018 and will run through July 28th, 2018. The objective of the online consultation is to seek broader feedback and comments from all interested parties, locally and internationally. We expect to hear views from various groups and individuals to finalize the document and make it more relevant for the country, as well as to use these views as an instrument to measure progress in achieving our twin goals.
The Consultations are asking two questions on the content, the first is about the diagnostic and the other about the partnership between the World Bank Group and Chile.
You consider that the WBG Systematic Country Diagnostic poses the main challenges that Chile is facing?
Which are the priority areas in those that the WBG can have more impact? Which are the knowledge areas that the Bank can contribute to the Chilean Development?
