The World Bank partners with the government to promote private sector-led, jobs-intensive growth, strengthen human and physical assets, and support effective resource management.
Botswana’s Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for the period of FY16–FY20 was presented to the World Bank Group’s (WBG) Board of Executive Directors in November 2015. The CPF was informed by the Systematic Country Diagnostics endorsed in March 2015, and developed in consultation with the Botswana government. It endeavors to support the country to eradicate abject poverty, reduce inequality, and promote job creation. The main areas of the CPF are: (i) promoting private sector-led, jobs intensive growth; (ii) strengthening human and physical assets; and (iii) supporting effective resource management. The Country Partnership Framework supports the Government’s National Development Plan 11 (NDP 11) and Botswana’s Vision 2036 goals.
The planned date of the next Country Partnership Framework is 2020.
As of March 2017, the WBG’s portfolio has two projects:
Integrated Transport Project $186 million Emergency Water Security and Efficiency Project $145.5 million In addition to its lending program, the World Bank is doing analytical work to help it better understand the apparent contradiction between the country’s strong track record in governance, macro-fiscal management, and growth vis-a-vis its high levels of poverty, inequality, and human development indicators, and to continue identifying key bottlenecks to economic diversification.
The Economic Diversification and Competitiveness RAS ($2.86 million): The WBG provides support to improve the business environment for accelerated job creation by small/medium-sized enterprises. This initiative also builds capacity for making regular projections of skills/jobs in priority sectors, as well as improves the country’s institutional capacity to develop economic clusters for both beef cattle and tourism. Public Sector Performance Strengthening RAS ($5.05 million): Botswana is supported by World Bank Group in the implementation of a national performance monitoring and evaluation system, with a focus on strengthening the design of large infrastructure projects and public procurement
