Country Private Sector Diagnostics (CPSDs) are jointly produced by IFC and the World Bank. They are a tool introduced to enable IFC and the World Bank to more systematically identify opportunities to help create or expand markets and private sector investment in developing countries.
The diagnostics help identify opportunities and the barriers that need to be overcome to create markets in some of the most challenging areas of the world. They highlight areas where private sector investment could have significant development impact through improvements in efficiency, services, job creation, and sector growth. These reports tap into IFC’s knowledge of the private sector and its needs and limitations, and the World Bank’s expertise in promoting country policy reforms and dialogue with governments.
Each publication includes an assessment of the state of private sector development in the country, a review of the macroeconomic situation, and relevant policy constraints. It also indicates opportunities and constraints to increasing private sector investment and growth in key sectors that impact economic development.
IFC and other development finance institutions have come together to provide in-depth economic analysis of the countries they support and help them address key challenges. The Country Diagnostic Platform, launched at the Spring Meetings 2019, makes available diagnostic papers that identify obstacles to progress as well as opportunities for development.
