The World Bank Group Country Opinion Survey Program systematically measures and tracks the perceptions of the World Bank's clients, partners, and other stakeholders across the globe in client countries. The Public Opinion Research Group surveyed 29 countries in FY2012 (July 2011-June 2012), 41 countries in FY2013 (July 2012-June 2013), 42 countries in FY2014 (July 2013-June 2014), 35 countries in FY2015 (July 2014-June 2015), 45 countries in FY2016 (July 2015-June 2016), 35 countries in FY2017 (July 2016-June 2017), and 39 countries in FY2018 (July 2017-June 2018). In FY2019, surveys were conducted in 42 countries. Nearly all of the World Bank Group's client countries are surveyed in every three year cycle.
The Country Opinion Survey in Morocco assists the World Bank Group (WBG) in gaining a better understanding of how stakeholders in Morocco perceive the WBG. It provides the WBG with systematic feedback from national and local governments, multilateral/bilateral agencies, media, academia, the private sector, and civil society in Morocco on 1) their views regarding the general environment in Morocco; 2) their overall attitudes toward the WBG in Morocco; 3) overall impressions of the WBG’s effectiveness and results, knowledge work and activities, and communication and information sharing in Morocco; and 4) their perceptions of the WBG’s future role in Morocco.
