The World Bank Group (WBG) has launched the preparation process for its new Partnership Framework with Ukraine. The process will involve consultations with a broad number of stakeholders among them, civil society, the private sector, development partners and others to exchange views on the country's development challenges and opportunities, and ways to address them through the partnership framework.
The Country Partnership Framework (CPF) will aim to reconfirm strategic areas of WBG support in light of socio-political and economic developments in Ukraine. We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how the WBG can better deliver its mission of reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity for Ukraine’s citizens.
The CPF will outline the World Bank Group’s medium term engagement strategy in Ukraine. It is based on the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) for the country which is an empirical assessment of the constraints the country has to address and the opportunities it can embrace to accelerate progress toward the goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity in ways that are environmentally, socially and fiscally sustainable.
The Consultation Process:
The CPF consultation process includes both face-to-face consultation meetings and an online/web-based platform. The process started in October 2016 with strategic discussion of development priorities and development challenges of the country with the Government of Ukraine, representatives of the Private Sector, Civil Society, bilateral and multilateral development partners to better fine-tune the strategic focus of the CPF. Additional consultations will take place with local authorities in Kyiv and in the regions in the weeks to come. During the discussions, 10 priority areas for potential CPF focus and engagement were identified and validated by those consulted so far. In these areas the WBG has experience, technical knowledge and comparative advantage vis-a-vis other partners. You will find the 10 areas by clicking here (Excel sheet).
The objective of the online consultations is to hear views and seek broader feedback and comments from all interested parties, including beneficiaries of World Bank funded projects, and from citizens of Ukraine in general on priority areas for potential CPF focus and engagement. To be part of this important consultation process, please send your views, comments, questions or suggestions to the World Bank’s office in Kyiv at: firstname.lastname@example.org
