Armenia - Country Assistance Strategy (Inglês)

From the range of interventions proposed in the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), the CAS focuses on three areas which best fit the Bank Group's comparative advantage and complement the activities of other donors. In each area, the CAS takes as its starting point long-term country goals, and on that basis defines specific results that can be achieved over the FYOS-08 CAS period: Promote private sector led economic growth. Achieving this goal will require better public services, measured by an improvement in business perceptions of government policies and corruption, and by a strengthening of the judicial system, measured by the level of satisfaction of court users. IDA will also help Armenia strengthen the financial system, measured by an increase in the ratio of loans to GDP, and improve communications infrastructure, measured by an increase in the number of telecoms licenses issued. Make growth more pro-poor. Achieving this goal will require accelerated job creation, measured initially by a fall in the share of the informal economy in GDP. It will also require a stronger rural economy, measured by an increase in value-added per hectare. Improvements in the social protection system will be measured by an increase in user satisfaction. Overall, the interventions in this category will contribute to a reduction in extreme poverty. Reduce non-income poverty. Achieving this goal will require better access to education, healthcare and basic infrastructure services. Education outcomes will be measured by the extent to which children stay in the education system. Health outcomes will be measured by service use among sick people in rural areas, and in the bottom consumption quintile. Improvements in access to basic infrastructure services will be measured by the share of the population with drinking water 24 hours a day.
