Jamaica - Performance and learning review of the country partnership strategy FY14-17 (English)

This performance and learning review (PLR) provides an assessment of progress toward achieving the objectives of the Jamaica country partnership strategy (CPS), FY14-17. The CPS provides strategic support under three pillars: (a) public sector modernization; (b) enabling environment for private sector-led growth; and (c) social and climate resilience. The CPS is consistent with the World Bank Group’s (WBG) twin goals of reducing poverty and enhancing shared prosperity. The PLR takes stock of the program implementation, recommends adjustments to reflect changes in the country context, and provides lessons learned. The CPS remains aligned with Jamaica’s long-term development plan, vision 2030 Jamaica, which calls for sustainable growth, prosperity, and social cohesion, and which enjoys bipartisan and broad social support. It is also aligned with the new government’s stronger focus on private sector-led growth and public sector modernization. The CPS extension will keep the existing structure of three strategic pillars, though with consolidated objectives and results indicators. The extension period will provide further time for implementation of key interventions of the WBG program.
