Global Partnership Programs (GPP)

 
spacer

imageGlobal and regional partnership programs are development programs that are organized outside of the Bank's regular country operations, at a cross-country level. They are thematic in focus and involve other partners (for example, bilateral donors, international organizations, foundations, civil society organizations, or the private sector) in their structure. They generally involve external funding committed at the program level.

The Bank plays a number of roles in these programs and may be a donor and/or trustee, as well as house and manage the secretariat where relevant, implement the activities at country level, or provide other forms of collaborative support. The Bank's role in governance also varies, depending upon the structure of the program.

A GPP should satisfy each of the following criteria:

  • commits Bank resources (financial, technical, staff, Bank name or reputation),
  • involves activities coordinated with one or more non-Bank entities,
  • is global, regional or multi-country (not single country) in scope, and
  • is part of a formal relationship that aims to achieve development objectives over time.
