    Description

    Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank consists of two entities the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). It is a global development cooperative owned by 189 member countries. As the largest development bank in the world, the World Bank provides loans, guarantees, risk management products, and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries, and coordinates responses to regional and global challenges.

    Equitable Growth, Finance and Institutions

    The Equitable Growth, Finance and Institutions (EFI) Practice Group provides support countries building economic and institutional foundations for inclusive and sustainable growth and, thereby, make progress towards achieving the World Bank Groups vision of ending extreme poverty and boost prosperity on a livable planet and mission to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity on a livable planet. The EFI Practice Group includes the WBG Global Practices of Finance Competitiveness and Innovation (FCI); Governance (GOV), Macroeconomics Trade and Investment (MTI); and Poverty and Equity (POV).

    Position Context

    The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region includes twenty-one countries of which three are IDA countries (Djibouti, Syria, and Yemen) while eight are high-income non-borrowing countries among the oil-exporters, particularly in the Gulf. The remaining countries are IBRD borrowing eligible. The region faces challenges, not least ongoing political turmoil and ongoing conflicts, high youth unemployment, severe water scarcity, high energy subsidy, and human and social development outcomes that have been below those achieved by countries at similar levels of income. These challenges have been recently compounded by the health, social and economic impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic and the fall out of the war in Ukraine. The social contract in the countries of the region is often described as broken and unsustainable.

    The WBG's engagement in governance in MENA Region is anchored in an ambitious strategy with a focus on four pillars the 4 Rs Renewing the social contract; Regional cooperation; Resilience to migration shocks; and Reconstruction and recovery. In parallel with the focus on immediate needs, we are helping countries develop new models for sustainable and inclusive growth in a dynamic and increasingly knowledge-based global economy. In 2019, we expanded the focus of the MENA regional strategy to include improving human capital outcomes, leveraging digital technologies, and opening-up business environments for the private sector to compete in a free and fair market.
