Sri Lanka - Performance and Learning Review of the Country Partnership Framework for the Period FY17-FY21 (Inglês)

This Program and Learning Review (PLR) for the Sri Lanka Country Partnership Framework FY17- FY20 (CPF) documents progress at the midpoint of the CPF’s implementation. The three CPF program areas as follows:(i) macro-stability and competitiveness; (ii) inclusion and opportunities for all; and (iii) green growth, environmental management, and climate change adaptation and mitigation potential—as well as the cross-cutting themes of gender and governance, remain relevant and well aligned with Sri Lanka’s development strategy, which the government articulated in its vision 2025, launched in September 2017. The CPF was grounded in a comprehensive systematic country diagnostic (SCD) which also remains valid. There has been solid progress toward achieving the CPF objectives, though progress has fallen short in some areas. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) program and World Bank (WB) analytic and technical support have contributed to stability in macroeconomic fundamentals. However, the country’s high debt levels, with impending rollover and repayment schedules, pose challenges to the gains achieved. The government remains strongly committed to improving the enabling environment for the private sector to participate in transformative investments by strengthening the use of public-private partnerships (PPPs). The PLR is introducing some shifts in the CPF program to respond to the World Bank Group’s evolving strategic priorities and changes in the country context, and to address challenges that arose during CPF implementation. The PLR reflects Sri Lanka’s graduation from an IDA to an IBRD country, but with access to IDA transitional funds. The PLR also proposes to extend the CPF by one year to June 2021, to reflect a more realistic pace of implementation in some key areas and better align the preparation of the next CPF with Sri Lanka’s electoral cycle.
