The World Bank Group’s Draft Country Partnership Framework for India FY18-22


World Bank

The World Bank Group’s (WBG) Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for India sets the strategic focus for the Group's engagement with the country for the period FY18-22, to support its aspirations as a middle-income economy.

The CPF is based on (i) the Government of India’s development priorities, (ii) WBG’s Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) for India, which presents the Group’s analysis of the key challenges facing India to progress towards the twin goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity and (iii) the WBG’s comparative advantage and value proposition to support India.  The CPF also incorporates lessons learnt from the last five years of implementation of the Country Partnership Strategy FY13-17.

Over the past several months, the WBG organized a series of consultations with a broad range of stakeholders across the country. The rich and insightful views, perspectives and ideas received as part of the consultations have provided valuable inputs to understand the progress, opportunities and challenges facing India’s development, and accordingly frame the WBG’s engagement in India for the period FY18-22. 

A synopsis of the WBG’s draft CPF is now available for public comment. Please share your comments and insights on our email id  What we hear from you will provide valuable inputs for implementing the new CPF for India.
