Belize - Country partnership strategy for FY2012-FY2015 (Inglês)

Belize is a small lower middle income country endowed with unique natural resources, including the largest barrier reef in the Americas and pristine tropical forests. The country's global comparative advantage is derived from its natural resource base, which supports the tourism and agriculture sectors, and its advantageous geographical proximity to major markets. Belize's principal development challenges are rooted in its high vulnerability to external shocks including terms of trade, natural hazards and impacts of climate change, while the Government's ability to address these challenges is constrained by high debt levels and limited fiscal space. This Country partnership strategy (CPS) will support the government's efforts to adopt a sustainable natural resource based economic model while enhancing the country's resilience to climate change and natural hazards. Three results areas support this overall objective and include: i) policies and strategies for mainstreaming of natural resources and climate resilience; ii) institutional capacity strengthening for natural resource management and climate change; and iii) investments to strengthen climate resilience. The Bank's program is selective, reflects an area in which the Bank has a comparative advantage, and supports an area central to Belize's development prospects. Capitalizing on heightened global awareness of climate change, the program aims to leverage substantial grant resources to complement modest International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) lending to increase the impact of the program.
