Bosnia and Herzegovina - Country partnership framework for the period FY2016-20 (English)

The present country partnership framework (CPF) for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) covers the period from July 2015 to June 2020. It builds on the lessons and results of the previous World Bank Group (WBG) country partnership strategy (CPS) for FY12-15, as well as on the recommendations of the CPS progress report of May 30, 2014. The CPF is closely linked to the priorities identified in the recently completed systematic country diagnostic (SCD), and seeks to focus WBG support to BiH on the top priorities that the country needs to tackle on the road to shared prosperity and sustainable development, namely, accelerating growth and creating jobs. The new framework will support a critical part of the reform agenda, a joint program of structural reforms adopted by the BiH Council of Ministers, Government of Republika Srpska, and Government of the Federation of BiH in July 2015. The WBG program under the new CPF will selectively support these reforms, focusing on areas where political will for reform is strongest and in close coordination with other development partners, most notably the European Commission.
