Mongolia - Performance and Learning Review of the Country Partnership Strategy for the Period FY13-FY18 (English)

This Progress and Learning Review (PLR) takes stock of progress of the World Bank Group (WBG) Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Mongolia for the period FY13-FY18. The strategy was based on the three pillars: (1) enhance Mongolia’s capacity to manage the mining economy sustainably and transparently; (2) build a sustained and diversified basis for economic growth and employment in urban and rural areas; and (3) address vulnerabilities through improved access to services and better service delivery. This PLR confirms the continued relevance of the CPS and its pillars for the partnership between Mongolia and the WBG. Even though there have been considerable economic and social changes in the country since the last CPS was approved, its key pillars and objectives remain highly relevant to address Mongolia’s development challenges. Managing the mining economy, promoting economic diversification, and better service delivery continue to be at the heart of Mongolia’s development challenges, as also confirmed by the WBG’s recent SCD, and the Mongolian government’s own development plans, such as the Sustainable Development Vision 2030 and the Economic Recovery Program (ERP). Therefore, the PLR does not propose any major adjustments to the WBG program. The PLR extends the CPS retroactively until December 31, 2020. After the SCD was finalized and a new CPF was ready for consultations with the government and internal approval, it became clear that Mongolia is now a candidate for IDA graduation. Such a graduation would impact the design of the next CPF. In October 2019, IDA Deputies and Borrower Representatives endorsed a proposal for Mongolia’s graduation from IDA at the third IDA19 replenishment meeting. The final decision by the IDA Board is expected before the end of FY20, while parliamentary elections in Mongolia will take place in June 2020. Thus, the WBG management in consultation with the Mongolian authorities decided the best course of action would be to postpone the next CPF until after the next elections. This would enable the next CPF to factor in the graduation decision and to be aligned with the priorities of the newly elected government. To avoid an additional gap in the WBG strategy formulation for the country, this PLR provides an update on the current strategy and extends it until the December 31, 2020. The WBG will aim to prepare a new CPF before the end of 2020.
