Niger - Performance and learning review of the country partnership strategy for the period FY13-FY16 (English)

This Performance and Learning Review (PLR) aims to assess the implementation of the World Bank Group’s (WBG) Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Niger covering FY13 to FY16 and adjust it to changes in the country context. The joint IDA/IFC/MIGA CPS was discussed by the Board of Executive Directors on April 30, 2013. It recognizes that increasing per-capita incomes is the central challenge for Niger to reduce poverty. In line with Niger’s 2012 Plan for Social and Economic Development (PDES) and the WBG’s twin goals, the CPS focuses the WBG support on key programs aiming at accelerating economic growth and reducing volatility, in combination with reforms that will ensure inclusive growth. The strategic pillars of the CPS are assisting Niger: (i) achieve resilient growth, (ii) reduce vulnerability and (iii) mainstreaming gender and strengthening governance and capacity for public service delivery. Niger has recently been affected by two negative developments: (i) slower than anticipated growth rate coupled with increased fiscal deficit and (ii) growing security attacks associated with terrorist groups in the Sahel region. These developments should lead to some adjustments of the WBG activities in the country. Still, in this challenging context, the Government’s programs supported by the WBG have relatively positive outcomes so far, except in the areas of investment climate and transparency of sector budget allocation. The performance of the WBG portfolio is sound. In order to achieve greater impact, the focus is now on building capacity and improving procedures to unlock implementation issues.
