South Caucasus Education ASA Georgia : Volume I (Inglês)

This document presents an overview of a series of advisory services and analytics for Georgia that were carried out over a period of approximately 18 months, starting from December of 2020 as part of the larger South Caucasus Education ASA (P174980). An annual Progress Review was approved on February 20, 2020. The common theme across all the activities conducted under this ASA was to inform policy decisions regarding the Georgia Human Capital Program (HCP; P175455), an initially projected USD 100 million IBRD loan that eventually became a USD 400 million Program for Results, approved by the Board on March 22, 2022. Seminars with internationally well-known subject experts as well as “just-in-time” data analytic policy research was carried out together with government counterparts and the outcomes and policy implications discussed with them. A wide number of policy decisions, ranging from broad themes such as the decision to focus on the curriculum as a central reform thrust, to operational level results, such as the precise magnitude of the rural-urban student performance gap, were the outcome of the series of analytical work. The objective of preparing and sharing this document is two-fold – to derive lessons learnt from the experience of an ASA very closely tied to a PforR lending operation; and to provide an institutional record of the policy analytical background of the HCP. The first objective, lessons learnt, is particularly important in the context where HCP is the first PforR operation for Georgia; and due to the large size of the operation, motivated in part by the stated desire of the Government leadership to bring about “transformative change” in human capital. The content of the discussions and the analytical work is included in this document for the above-mentioned purposes. There is not a comprehensive list of policy recommendations in this document as the policy decisions have already been made in real time with the analysis. This document presents an overview of a series of advisory services and analytics for Georgia. The common theme across all the activities was to inform policy decision regarding the Georgia Human Capital Program. This overview report has three sections, with brief descriptions in each section of activities that were performed to inform the program.
