Ongoing dialogue between the World Bank Group and stakeholders—government, civil society, media, academia, the private sector and others—is a critical aspect of our work. Tapping into a broad range of perspectives strengthens the outcomes and accountability of our engagement and helps build enduring partnerships. It is through this dialogue that we can help implement more effective solutions to local, regional and global development challenges. This website is a platform to inform and consult with interested and affected parties on select areas of our work, such as new policies or changes to regulations, Country Partnership Strategies, and global thematic studies and programs. Below is a list of consultations currently being held in various countries on different topics. Additional consultations may take place through face-to-face engagements and other digital channels.
This online consultation seeks your feedback on the initial findings of the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) for the Kyrgyz Republic. The World Bank Group welcomes views from civil society organizations, the academic community, think tanks, individual experts and citizens to finalize the Diagnostic report and make it relevant for the country in achieving its poverty reduction and development goals.
The Systematic Country Diagnostic is an empirical assessment of the constraints and opportunities a country faces to make progress toward the World Bank Group's twin goals of ending extreme poverty and building shared prosperity in a sustainable way. The SCD also offers a list of priorities for the short and medium term, and draws upon all available information, including findings of World Bank Group analytical work, as well as research by other international and domestic partners, and incorporates feedback received during consultations. The purpose of the SCD is to inform the Country Partnership Framework (CPF) between the World Bank Group and the country.
What is the Country Partnership Framework for the Kyrgyz Republic?
The Country Partnership Framework (CPF) is a strategic document, periodically updated, that sets priority areas for World Bank Group support in the country. A new CPF will be prepared in 2017 to guide the World Bank Group's engagement in the Kyrgyz Republic over the coming four years (2018 – 2021). The process will build upon:
The findings of the SCD;
An analysis of the World Bank Group's comparative advantage in each priority area;
Discussions and consultations with a wide range of stakeholders;
The National Development Strategy of the Kyrgyz Republic.
Who will be engaged?
SCD consultations will take place throughout the Kyrgyz Republic during February-April 2017. The SCD team will meet with a wide range of stakeholders, including government counterparts (national, regional, and local), development partners, private sector representatives, civil society, and academia. In addition to face-to-face consultation, online platforms will allow people to submit questions and comments, as well as access SCD materials.
How will engagement inputs feed into the SCD and CPF?
The SCD team will seek inputs on specific questions related to the Kyrgyz Republic's development priorities, as well as insights into the real challenges faced by citizens in their daily lives. These contributions will inform the SCD directly and be reflected in meeting summaries which will be made publicly available on the World Bank's Kyrgyz Republic website.
Who will have access to the SCD and CPF?
After final approval, the SCD and the CPF will be made publicly available and posted on the World Bank’s Kyrgyz Republic website. The intention is that they serve as useful references for policymakers, civil society, and citizens. The SCD team will be available at any time to brief interested stakeholders throughout the preparation process.
