Ghana - Country Strategy Paper 2019-2023


This document proposes the Bank Group Country Strategy Paper (CSP) for Ghana for the period 2019 – 2023. The report presents how the Bank Group intends to support Ghana’s development efforts over the period of the CSP. The choice of intervention areas was informed by Ghana’s development priorities as detailed in the Medium-Term National Development Policy Framework (MTDF) 2018 – 2021 and the Coordinated Programme of Economic and Social Development Policies (CPESDP) 2017-2024.1 The CSP also reflects the development aspirations of government as embodied in i) the Ghana Beyond Aid Charter, and ii) the Development Cooperation Policy, which are being finalized. In addition to these national development plans and policies, the new strategy was informed by extensive consultations with the Government of Ghana (GoG), private sector entities, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Development Partners (DPs). It was also informed by findings from economic and sector diagnostics, and the recommendations from the Bank’s Independent Development Evaluations (IDEV) evaluation of CSPs from 2002 to 2015 as well as the completion report of CSP 2012-2018. The CSP is aligned with the Bank’s Ten Years Strategy (TYS) 2013-2022 and reflects the High-5 priorities of the Bank.
