Country Partnership Framework

The World Bank Group is currently in the process of developing its new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for the Kyrgyz Republic for the period of 2018-2022. 

The CPF will guide the Group's strategic support to the Kyrgyz Republic’s development agenda over the coming five years and will be closely aligned with the country’s development priorities. The CPF will be based on the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD), which is an assessment of the constraints and opportunities facing the Kyrgyz Republic in reducing poverty and building shared prosperity sustainably. 

The design and preparation process of the CPF involves consultations with different groups of stakeholders in order to exchange views on the country's development opportunities and how to address them through the CPF.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how the World Bank Group can better deliver its mission of reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity for the citizens of Kyrgyzstan.

Once developed and presented to the Group's Board of Executive Directors, the CPF will be made available to the public via the World Bank in the Kyrgyz Republic website

The Consultation Process

The consultation process includes both face-to-face consultation meetings and an online/web-based platform. The process started in November 2016 with strategic discussions with youth, heads of local municipalities, and business associations. To better fine-tune the strategic focus of the CPF, more consultations will take place in January and February 2018, both in the capital city of Bishkek and in the regions, involving NGOs, thinks tanks, academia and individual experts, private sector and government officials. 

Online Consultations

The online consultation period is open until February 10, 2018. The objective of the online consultation is to seek broader feedback and comments from Kyrgyz citizens on the 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 Bishkek at dakmatbekova@worldbank.org
