The World Bank Group’s Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Pakistan for FY2015-19 was formulated after an extensive, country-wide consultations process, with a diverse set of stakeholders. It is structured to help the country tackle the most difficult but potentially transformational areas to reach the twin goals of poverty reduction and shared prosperity. The four strategic pillars results areas of the CPS are anchored in the Government’s framework of 4Es: Energy, Economy, Extremism and Education; and the initial priorities of the upcoming Vision 2025.
As of January 31, 2014, Pakistan’s portfolio consisted of 24 active projects (IDA + IBRD) with a total commitment of $4.4 billion. The Bank manages a Multi-Donor Trust Fund for conflict affected areas of about $175.6 million, which provides grants to KP, FATA and Balochistan. In addition, the Bank maintains an extensive and ongoing analytic work program on a wide range of economic and sector specific topics.
