Togo - Country assistance strategy (English)

The promotion of sustainable, private sector-led growth and poverty reduction is the central objective of the Bank Group's program of assistance for Togo. In pursuing this objective, the strategy is selective in emphasis and adopts a two-pronged approach for its implementation ensuring that both the country's short-term emergency needs and longer-term development objectives are addressed. Because restoring macroeconomic stability is a necessary precondition for the resumption of growth and sustained poverty reduction, IDA's assistance strategy will first support the Government's efforts to improve public resource mobilization and allocation and reform public enterprises. Also in the short term, the strategy focuses on rehabilitating essential transport and energy infrastructure and restoring basic social services (primary health, education and urban services), both of which deteriorated significantly during the crisis. To sustain economic growth and poverty alleviation process over the medium to long-term, the strategy proposes to support broad policy reforms and targeted investments to enhance the poor's participation in economic growth, create an overall favorable environment for private sector development and increase the efficiency and sustainability of natural resource management. Throughout the assistance program, strengthening public sector management will be an important component of the planned operations.
