World Bank budget FY16 (English)

The World Bank Group (WBG) has made good progress on the implementation of reform efforts and the new operating model in FY15. The Global Practice structure is in place now, with strengthened management and governance, and the institution is focused on advancing our strategic goals and objectives. Important priorities are delivery to IDA countries, including on IDA17 commitments, and to the middle income clients. The strategic planning process and approach to budgeting launched in the last budget cycle is being refined to provide even greater focus on the operating model and its efficiency. This WBG budget report has the following sections: (1) overview and FY16 budget recommendations; (2) financial and budgetary context section discusses the main determinants of the size of the overall expenditure envelope: the institution’s financial outlook in the context of the financial sustainability framework; and the implementation of the Expenditure Review; (3) FY16-18 budget framework and proposal section highlights the key budgetary and institutional priorities adopted during the business planning process.
