Ongoing dialogue or “consultations” between the World Bank Group (WBG) and stakeholders – government, civil society, media, academia, and the private sector – is a critical aspect of the WBG’s work. Tapping into a broad range of perspectives, exchanging views, and capturing feedback strengthens the outcomes and accountability of the Bank Group’s engagement and helps build enduring partnerships. It is through this dialogue that the Bank Group can help implement more effective solutions to local, regional and global development challenges.

This website is a platform for the WBG to consult online with interested and impacted parties on selected areas of our work, such as new policies or changes to regulations, Country Partnership Strategies, global thematic studies and programs. Consultations may also take place on other dedicated websites, through face-to-face engagements and on social media. Please see links below on consultations held on this platform.

Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) of the economic and social situation in Comoros

Thanks for all your comments!

Many thanks to all who took the time to answer our questions. Your comments have been heard. Read More.

We Want to Hear From You

Help us analyze the economic and social situation of Comoros by answering a few questions.

These consultations will continue online until October 30, 2017.

We need to hear your opinion on your country’s future.

New poverty analyses based on the 2013-2014 household survey show that 42.4% of the population is living below the poverty line and 17.8% of Comorians live on less than $1.90 per person per day (Exchange rate: purchasing power parity (2011)). Despite significant progress with poverty reduction and economic recovery, a fairly sizable percentage of Comorians continue to endure extremely harsh living conditions and lack many necessities.

  • In your opinion, what is preventing the country from achieving more rapid progress in its poverty reduction efforts? What are the most binding constraints facing Comoros?
  • If you could select the main opportunities that your country needs to address to achieve poverty reduction and shared prosperity, which would you choose?
  • And, what in your view are the main elements that affect economic growth, social inclusion and sustainable development?

The World Bank Group would like to hear your views on all these questions to help inform its new strategy to strengthen its partnership with Comoros.

Why does your opinion matter?

The World Bank’s strategy to strengthen its partnership with Comoros consists of two main phases: (i) the Systematic Country Diagnostic (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 Comoros.

To inform the SCD, a World Bank team recently launched public consultations in the field and online to obtain the opinions of stakeholders (representatives from the public and private sectors and civil society) and pinpoint the main obstacles to be overcome and the development opportunities that Comoros needs to address to step up efforts to reduce extreme poverty and promote more inclusive growth. Apart from the Government, a series of meetings are also planned with other stakeholders including elected representatives, civil society, the private sector, development partners, the Central Bank of Comoros, the Université des Comores, and the Agence nationale de conception et d'exécution des projets (National project design and execution agency ANACEP).

These consultations were launched on September 18, 2017 and will continue until September 22, 2017.

Online consultations are also being organized until October 30, 2017 to allow the widest possible participation.

Why is it important to share your views? 

Once the SCD has been finalized, it will be used to prepare the Country Partnership Framework, which determines the priorities for the World Bank Group’s engagement with Comoros.

Make a difference in your country’s future by sharing with us your views on the questions listed above.
