Eswatini - Performance and learning review of the country partnership strategy for the period FY15-FY18 (English)

This Performance and Learning Review (PLR) assesses progress in the implementation of the Eswatini Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) FY15-18, the first full World Bank Group (WBG) strategy for Eswatini in two decades. The CPS was developed following in-country consultations with various stakeholders including Government, civil society, business and development partners. It built on work done under the two-year Interim Strategy Note (ISN) for FY08-FY10 and is aligned with the National Development Strategy (NDS) and its Vision 2022. The CPS served as a vehicle to deepen engagement while improving mutual understanding of the processes and procedures involving WBG support for the country’s development. It drew on recommendations of prior analytical work, such as the public service payroll audit, the growth diagnostic, the customs modernization advisory and comprised two pillars: (i) promoting growth and job creation, and (ii) strengthening state capabilities. Lending and non-lending activities within each pillar were selective, focusing on public sector economic management, improved competitiveness, skills development and social services delivery. The lending envelope of US$50 million for two projects was complemented by Advisory Services and Analytics (ASA) funded through trust funds, grants and the Bank’s administrative budget. The PLR proposes a two-year extension of the CPS to FY2020, and changes to the results framework in response to evolving country priorities.
