Many of the Sustainable Development Goals relate to resilience.1 In the World Bank’s new strategy adopted in October 2013—achieving the twin goals of eliminating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity in a sustainable manner—resilience is at the heart of the three-pronged view of sustainability: fiscal, social, and environmental sustainability.

Mozambique is a low income country with a GNI per capita of $1,120 in 2014. The country experienced rapid growth over the last 25 years, but high poverty rates persist, particularly in the rural areas. Data from the National Statistics Institute show that the poverty headcount ratio fell from 70 to 46 percent between 1996 and 2014.

The country experienced rapid growth over the last 25 years, but high poverty rates persist, particularly in the rural areas. Data from the National Statistics Institute show that the poverty headcount ratio fell from 70 to 46 percent between 1996 and 2014. The country’s reliance on capital intensive investments led to rapid economic growth but generated relatively few jobs and their ties to the rest of the economy are limited. Unemployment rate remained at 22.6 percent in 2012-2014. The country ranks low in Human Development Index: 180 out of 188 countries. Natural hazards hit the country frequently and hard, and are likely to worsen with climate change. The government’s Action Plan to Reduce Poverty for 2011-2014 (Plano de Acção de Redução de Pobreza -PARP) sought to confront these problems and the WBG’s Country partnership Strategy (CPS) addressed some of these challenges under the pillars of competitiveness and employment (Focus Area I), vulnerability and resilience (Focus Area II), and a foundation pillar, governance and public sector capacity (Focus Area III). In April 2016, the government acknowledged to the IMF that it had borrowed an amount in excess of $1 billion in commercial terms during 2012-2015. The disclosure weakened investors’ confidence in the country’s macroeconomic stability, and contributed to further depreciating the metical. These two factors combined raised the country’s debt to GDP ratio from 60 percent in 2014 to 120 percent in 2016.

This is the first IEG evaluation that systematically reviews the World Bank Group CE efforts (including IFC and MIGA). CE is the umbrella term adopted by the World Bank Group to denote a multitude of different interactions with a variety of stakeholders—such as government, private sector, and development institutions, including the World Bank Group—at different points in the project or program cycle that give citizens a stake in decision making with the objective of improving development outcomes. It is a two-way relationship that implies the existence of a tangible response to citizens’ feedback.
