civil society policy forum annual meetings 2023

The Civil Society Policy Forum, the World Bank Group's largest platform for engaging with civil society, was held from October 10-13. Watch the sessions on this page.

The CSPF is a key event during the World Bank Group-International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings (SMs) and Annual Meetings (AMs). This weeklong forum provides an open space for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs)* to dialogue and exchange views with World Bank Group and IMF staff, their peers, government delegations, and other stakeholders on a wide range of shared development issues.

The 2023 AMs CSPF took place October 10-13, 2023, in Marrakech, Morocco, with hybrid components.

The call for proposals for the CSPF closed on July 31, 2023. The CSPF Working Group worked along with the World Bank and IMF CSO teams, to select proposals that contribute to a diverse and comprehensive forum.
