Turkey - Country partnership framework for the period FY18 - FY21 (Turkish)

This Country Partnership Framework (CPF) for Turkey covers the period FY18-21. Itis aligned with the objectives of Turkey’s 10th Development Plan and is based on the findings of aWorld Bank Group (WBG) Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) that was finalized in February 2017. The CPF aims to help Turkey to achieve its development objectives through building on the foundations of the existing program and consolidating gains in key areas where the WBG is already active, as well as developing the program further in areas which target the WBG twin goals of reducing extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. The CPF puts forward a flexible approach for the WBG’s program that is appropriate for a middle-income country of Turkey’s size and takes account of the evolving country and regional situation.The choice of CPF priorities and objectives was informed by a broad consultative approach undertaken both in the preparation of the SCD and of the CPF.The SCD also identified these challenges under its pillars of Solid Foundations and Dynamic Firms. The CPF objectives are grouped into three focus areas with nine CPF objectives.These challenges form the basis for the choice of CPF objectives under this first Focus Area: (i) increased fiscal space; (ii) enhanced access to finance to underserved segments; and (iii) enhanced competitiveness and employment in select industries. The second focus area supports WBG in this area aims to consolidate Turkey’s success towards achieving the twin goals while also supporting efforts to reach those who are left behind. This CPF objective has the goal of improving efficiency and effectiveness in social assistance and strengthening the evidence-base for policies aiming to narrow gaps between regions and ensure greater inclusion of vulnerable groups. The third focus area program will help address the SCD-highlighted challenge of reorienting growth towards a more green, resilient and sustainable pattern.
