A two-day consultative dialogue on Ghana’s World Bank Country Partnership Framework (CPF) has been organized at the Hephzibah Christian Center in Aburi, 24th-25th June 2021. The work session was organized by the Economic Governance Platform (EGP) and the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC), with the support of OXFAM in Ghana. The meeting hosted Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to review the current revised CPF for Ghana to compare the linkages to earlier recommendations. The CPF is the country strategy that lays out the country specific development goals that the World Bank Ghana (WBG) aims to employ in helping Ghana to achieve the twin goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity. The current CPF is informed by the Systemic Country Diagnostic (2018), Country Private Sector Diagnostic (2017) and the Country Economic Memorandum (2021).
FOSDA’s contribution was in the call for sustainable financing for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) under the Youth Development subarea and automation at the local level in the Domestic Revenue Mobilization theme.
The revised CPF focuses on Enhancing conditions for private sector development with quality job growth; Improving inclusive service delivery and promoting resilient and sustainable development
