Public Consultations to Inform the World Bank Group’s Systematic Country Diagnostic of the Economic and Social Situation in Benin

To inform the SCD, the World Bank Group has started public consultations to identify and analyze the most binding constraints and the main opportunities that Benin needs to address to achieve the twin goals of extreme poverty reduction and shared prosperity. The consultations started on March 13, 2017 with a workshop with the government, and will continue until March 17, 2017.

Overview

The World Bank Group has started the preparation of its new strategy to strengthen its partnership with Benin. This process involves two main phases: (i) the Systematic Country Diagnotic (SCD) which aims to identify the country’s main development constraints and priorities; and (ii) the Country Partnership Framework which determines the priorities for the World Bank Group’s engagement with the country.

Launch of public consultations on the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD)

To inform the SCD, the World Bank Group has started public consultations to identify and analyze the most binding constraints and the main opportunities that Benin needs to address to achieve the twin goals of extreme poverty reduction and shared prosperity. The consultations started on March 13, 2017 with a workshop with the government, and will continue until March 17, 2017.

Apart from the government, a series of meetings are planned throughout the week with other key stakeholders, including: parliamentarians, civil society, private sector, development partners, faith-based organizations, academia, unions, etc.

Online consultations are also organized (from March 13 to 24, 2017) to allow a wider participation.
