Iraq - Performance and learning review of the country partnership strategy for the period FY13-FY16 : Main report (Arabic)

This Performance and Learning Review (PLR) Report is a mid-term assessment of the implementation of the IBRD/IDA/IFC/MIGA Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for the Republic of Iraq for FY13-16 that was discussed by the World Bank’s Group’s (WBG) Board of Executive Directors on December 18, 2012. Deterioration of the security situation coupled with the recent sharp decrease in oil prices and slow-moving economic reforms poses critical challenges. Increased internal security shocks in the past year redirected government spending towards security amid the decline in oil revenues, the primary source of government financing, and led to delays in the country’s development plans. Going forward, and taking into consideration the major shifts that have taken place, the CPS program will support Iraq’s efforts toward stabilization in the current fragile context, rebuild state institutions, and put the economy on a sustainable path of shared prosperity. The upcoming Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) programmed in FY16, will identify the medium and longer-term constraints towards achieving the World Bank’s strategic goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity. The WBG will need to take considerable risks to work towards its objectives of poverty reduction and shared prosperity in a fragile and conflict-ridden environment.
