World Bank*

the Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) covers the period 2016-2020 - The Country Partnership Framework (CPF) is aligned with Uruguay’s 2015-2020 political cycle and selectivity has been exercised in the identification of objectives. The design of the CPF program responds to the Government’s priorities and is also closely coordinated with the programs of Uruguay’s other development partners, including IADB and CAF. The program is anchored in the findings of the new Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) which was informed by extensive consultations with a wide range of stakeholders. The proposed CPF program is designed to support the Government in its pursuit of six objectives identified in the SCD, grouped into three focal areas, namely, building resilience, rebalancing the social compact, and integrating Uruguay into global markets. During consultations, the Government endorsed the selection of focal areas (CPF’s pillars and objectives) and the technical teams closely coordinated with the Bank experts who designed a set of indicators, which are fully owned.

Due to its economic performance, Uruguay is considered as a "graduated" country and therefore it is not eligible for bilateral cooperation under the financial exercise 2014-2020. Under the financial period 2007-2013 (€36 million) the two main focal sectors of EU assistance were social and territorial integration and innovation, research and economic development. Regarding the thematic activities, Uruguay is benefiting from this support in a number of fields, such as economic and social development, human rights, poverty reduction, social cohesion, violence prevention, drugs and environmental protection.
