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.
The World Bank Group (WBG) and the Government of Morocco are currently working on a new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) which will outline WBG’s support to Government’s development priorities. The CPF will cover a six-year period (Fiscal year 2019 to 2024) and will be validated by the World Bank Group Board of Executive Directors in early 2019.
The focus areas for the new CPF are the following: i) Promoting Job Creation and Private Sector Growth; ii) Transforming Human Capital; and iii) Promoting Inclusive and Resilient Territorial Development. Governance and Citizen Engagement form the foundation of the CPF, while Digital Economy and Gender are crosscutting themes.
To validate some of the pre-identified focus areas, we would like to welcome you to the present platform of consultations to seek your feedback on the country’s development priorities, the identified objectives, as well as opportunities to achieve a sustainable outcome. So, please share your suggestions and views.
