Equitable Growth, Finance, and Institutions Practice Group:
The Equitable Growth, Finance, and Institutions Practice Group (EFI) is one of the World Bank Group’s four Practice Groups. EFI’s mandate is “Growth, Finance, and Institutions for all.” Our approach is to leverage public and private sector expertise, together with International Finance Corporation (IFC), to support a data-driven reform agenda. EFI supports clients in advancing evidence-based structural reforms to build the foundations for inclusive and sustainable growth. EFI is composed of four Global Practices (GPs):
Macroeconomics, Trade, and Investment (MTI)and Finance, Competitiveness, and Innovation (FCI) — consist of country economists and trade, financial and private development specialists that support structural reforms.
Governance GP – consists of public sector, financial management and procurement specialists to support institutional and governance reforms and provide fiduciary support to all Bank operations.
Poverty and Equity GP – consists of micro, labor, and development economists to build the evidence base, provide advice and operational support to ensure country policies and WBG interventions are inclusive.
The FCI GP is comprised of two directorates: The Finance directorate, and the Trade, Investment and Competitiveness (TIC) directorate. The GP aims to support client countries to create an enabling environment in which financial stability, efficiency and firm-level solutions are provided in an integrated way to crowd in the private sector, support the creation of markets, and accelerate equitable growth.
The Trade, Investment, and Competitiveness (TIC) Directorate provides analytical, advisory, and lending support to client governments to enact reforms that lead to increased investment, trade, jobs, and more competitive and contestable markets. The unit is comprised of thematic teams focused on

Across the continent, the World Bank’s program has nearly doubled over the last 10 years. By 2030, about 87% of the world’s extreme poor are projected to live in Sub-Saharan Africa, so this is where our mission to end extreme poverty and to promote shared prosperity will be achieved.
