Ethiopia - Country partnership strategy (FY2013-FY2016) (English)

The last World Bank Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) for Ethiopia originally covering FY2008-11 was discussed by the Board of Directors on April 29, 2008. In 2010, at the time of the CAS progress report, that CAS was extended by one year, to include FY12, due to slower than expected implementation of CAS activities as well as to allow more time to undertake a necessary poverty diagnostic. This Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) builds on the progress achieved by Ethiopia during the past five years. It also aims to help the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) address ongoing challenges and assist in the implementation of Ethiopia's Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP, 2010-15). It covers the period from FY2013 to FY2016, one year beyond the GTP's implementation timeframe. As with the previous CAS it is a result-based strategy firmly anchored in the Government's program as well as the World Bank strategy for Africa. This paper is organized into four chapters. First chapter provides a brief political and economic context followed by a summary of achievements in key areas of economic and human development over the past decade. Second chapter presents the ongoing challenges faced by Ethiopia and the approach the Government is taking, as outlined in the GTP, to address them in the coming years. Third and fourth chapter focus on the World Bank Group (WBG) role in Ethiopia starting with a review of the past WBG assistance followed by a description of the key areas of the new partnership, its implementation and risks. Appendices and annexes provide additional information and statistics.
