The first phase of stakeholder consultations were held for the preparation of the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD). This was a forward-looking exercise aimed at identifying those binding constraints that keep the country from reaching its full potential. The main results of that exercise is outlined in the first part of the PPT attached on this page.
With the SCD completed, the WBG is further consulting with stakeholders to focus the discussion into an operational prism, i.e. how best can the Bank help Mozambique meet its development challenges. Through in-person discussions and online input, we are welcoming views of Mozambique's stakeholders as well as diaspora on the country's development agenda as well as recommendations on new opportunities and challenges.
SHARE YOUR VIEWS – Let us know what you think!
The online consultation period is open from Monday March 21, 2016, to April 10, 2016.
Here are some ideas you could think about:
* The World Bank Group's twin goals are to end extreme poverty by 2030 and promote shared prosperity. To contribute to these goals in Mozambique, in which three priority areas should the Bank focus its attention and resources on in the next five years?
* Which policies or investments would help the country to better achieve the highest return in terms of Employment creation and productivity growth, Opportunities for those at the bottom of the income distribution economic or Social and environmental sustainability?
The Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) is a key reference point on priorities for WBG engagement in Mozambique. The preparation of the SCD, which entailed consultations with stakeholders helped identify key challenges and opportunities for ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity in Mozambique. The SCD will be made public on April of 2016, however its main findings are summarized on the PPT attached.
The Country Partnership Framework (CPF) is an operational plan and the main tool guiding the WBG's support for Mozambique's development program. It starts from the country's own development goals, builds around widespread consultations and engagement with all stakeholders. This phase is ongoing.
