ConsultationsToggle button

Ongoing dialogue between the World Bank Group and stakeholders—government, civil society, media, academia and the private sector—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.

Review of the World Bank Group Sanctions System

The World Bank Group is undertaking a review of its Sanctions System. This system is an administrative process for sanctioning firms and individuals found to have engaged in corrupt, fraudulent, collusive, coercive or obstructive practices in connection with Bank-financed projects.

The first phase of the consultation for the review of the Sanctions System closed on October 31, 2013. A summary of the consultation is available here.

The review, conducted in two phases, is meant to help assess and evaluate the implementation of the system so far. The current Phase I is a stock-taking exercise undertaken to evaluate the implementation, efficiency and effectiveness of the Sanctions System and to identify possible areas for making improvements. To capture issues of implementation, efficiency, and effectiveness of the Sanctions System, the Legal Vice Presidency of the World Bank Group is conducting consultations with external stakeholders to solicit feedback on the system.

The objective of these consultations is to receive input on what works and what does not work well from the perspective of stakeholders, and recommendations on how to reform the existing processes to better serve the objectives of the system. A summary of initial findings along with a presentation are the background information for consultations with external stakeholders.

For more information on the review process and the consultation, see the consultation plan.

The input received from the consultation will inform a final report that the World Bank’s Legal Vice Presidency will present to the Audit Committee of the World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors in late 2013.
