Moldova - Country assistance strategy (Inglês)

This Country Assistance strategy (CAS) establishes the lending and non-lending support to Moldova for the period FY05-FY08. It has been prepared in consultation with the Government of Moldova, representatives of civil society, the private sector, and development partners active in Moldova. The country's transition to a market economy has been difficult, with high vulnerability to external shocks, a volatile internal political environment, and mixed reform implementation, with a growth performance that remains largely consumption-led, driven mainly by remittances from abroad. This CAS is set against the backdrop of a difficult policy environment; as a result, it takes a cautious approach. It will mainly support interventions at the local/community levels in rural areas, and small cities - the two areas with the highest concentration of poverty - employing a Community Driven Development (CDD) approach. These interventions will focus directly on helping Moldova achieve its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and will consist of selected interventions to improve the quality of, and access to social services, education, health, social protection, and community infrastructure. It will also support the Government's effort to implement reforms to eliminate the bottlenecks to growth - improvements in the business environment and public sector governance. The CAS recognizes areas where the perception gap has been the widest, and past efforts at reforms have been less successful. Active dialogue with the Bank, and development partners is ongoing, and successful policy actions will allow the Government to demonstrate its commitment to reform. Success also would lead to greater donor support. Over this period, planned new lending will be under the base case, while progress in implementing the benchmarks as outlined, including a solid track record in achieving improvements in the business environment and public sector governance, sustained over a period of 12 to 18 months, would trigger a high-case lending scenario. Under the High Case, the International Development Association (IDA) will be in a position to resume support of structural reforms, possibly through development policy lending, and complementary investment credits. The Bank's non-lending program would provide the analytical underpinnings for lending, and would include studies to improve pro-poor targeting of IDA resources.
