This document details the scope and the
main elements of the Country Partnership Framework (CPF)
with the Republic of Botswana for FY16-20. The previous
Country Partnership Strategy (CPS), considered by the Board
on May 21, 2009 and completed in 2013 has built a solid
foundation to design the new World Bank Group (WBG) program.
The CPF supports the government’s ongoing National
Development Plan (NDP10) that has recently been extended
until 2017. It also reviews the new NDP11 now under
preparation. The Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) was
completed after Botswana’s General Elections in October
2014. The SCD drew on all available research and benefited
greatly from the series of stakeholder consultations
conducted in the country between March and September, 2014.
The report was well received by the national authorities and
sent for information to the Board on March 31, 2015. The SCD
identified the following priority development challenges:
(a) despite rapidly declining poverty, low job creation
keeps inequality extremely high; (b) with the weakening of
traditional growth drivers, a new growth model is needed
that is jobs-intensive, export-oriented, and private
sector-driven; (c) despite broad and well-intentioned
investment, inclusion barriers remain; (d) sustainability is
threatened as resource vulnerability challenges long-term
growth and inclusion.
