World Bank Group Civil Society & Academia Consultations in Pakistan

February 9-12, 2021



The World Bank Group (WBG) is conducting countrywide virtual consultations with civil society organizations, amongst other stakeholders, in the process of preparing a new Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for Pakistan. The CPF will outline the WBG’s support in the country for the period 2022-2026.

The consultations aim to gather diverse views from development practitioners and stakeholders on Pakistan’s economic and social challenges and the ways in which the World Bank Group can best address them through the CPF.

Consultations with civil society organizations will take place online on Tuesday, February 9 and Wednesday, February 10, through a series of sessions with participants based in or working in from Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh, along with Federal representation. Consultations with academia will take place online on Friday, February 12. A full schedule is available in the next tab.

We invite you to register to attend the session that best represents your interests according to province.
