We are Planning Our Support for Tunisia and We Need Your Help

October 27, 2014


Having completed the political transition, Tunisia now faces the challenge of building an economy that provides opportunities for all Tunisians. At the World Bank Group, we want to do everything we can to support this process. The Tunisian government has launched a 5-year development plan, and we have a developed strategy to support that plan. Our strategy is called a Country Partnership Framework and it will cover the years 2016 to 2020.  

This is where we need your help.

One of the important lessons we learned from the Jasmine revolution is to listen more carefully, to a wider range of voices - especially when we are developing new strategies. We are redoubling our efforts to reach out to all members of the communities we intend to support, to give everyone an opportunity to voice their opinions on the new strategy, to let us know what might be missing, and what else we could be doing to help Tunisia achieve its goals.We are organizing a series of face to face consultations on our new strategy in Beja, Zaghouan and Tunis for the week of November 2nd 2015. We also invite you to provide your feedback online.

Please help us with your feedback on the following questions: 

  • What role should the World Bank Group play in supporting the government of Tunisia’s development plan?
  • Are the proposed areas of engagement (please see the graph below) appropriate?
  • Will they help Tunisia meet it current challenges?
  • What are the key risks and how might we prepare for them?
  • How can we improve the implementation of our program?
  • Are there things the World Bank Group could do differently?
Whether in person or on line, we need to hear from YOU. Your insight will help us deliver the right kind of help, to where it is most needed.
