The World Bank Group has launched a preparation process for its new partnership framework with Poland. The process involves consultations with different stakeholders, including the government, international financial institutions, civil society and private sector, to exchange views on the country’s development opportunities and how the World Bank Group can help address them.
The World Bank Group is currently designing its new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for Poland for the period of July 2018 to June 2023. The CPF will guide the Group’s program for the country and gauge its effectiveness in boosting shared prosperity.
Poland has already reached high-income status. But making it future-ready requires addressing complex problems and challenges, including dramatic demographic shifts, significant regional disparities and transition to a low-emissions economy.
The CPF is selective in that it focuses on specific objectives where there is the greatest development need, where the government sees catalytic roles for the World Bank Group’s support, and where the Group itself has distinct value.
Consultations include both face-to-face meetings with different stakeholders, including the government, international financial institutions, civil society and private sector, as well as online consultation platform.
The online process started in February 2018 to and will run through March 2018.
The objective of the online consultation is to seek broader feedback and comments from all interested parties, locally and internationally, on the presentation of the CPF (attached in the MATERIALS section on the right). We expect to hear views from various groups and individuals to finalize the document and make it more relevant for the country, as well as to use these views as an instrument to measure progress in achieving our objectives in the country.
