Niger - Putting the economy on a path of higher growth (Inglês)

Niger is a vast landlocked country in the Sahel, with an estimated 14.7 million people, the majority of whom live along a narrow band of arable land on the country's southern border. The country is endowed with precious mineral resources, such as uranium, gold and oil, which provide an excellent opportunity for creating national prosperity, if well managed. But the current economy is dominated by agriculture. This primary sector, which accounted for about 45 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2008, is dominated by rain-fed agriculture, (though with an increasing focus on irrigation). Livestock production accounted for about a third of the value added in the sector. With some 80 percent of Niger's population living in rural areas, rural development is a priority if the country is to raise incomes and reduce poverty. The International Development Association (IDA), the World Bank's fund for the world's poorest countries, has supported Niger since 1964, starting with a road project to connect cash crop regions with the main national and regional markets. Since then, IDA has supported the country's efforts to improve core basic service delivery in energy, water, basic education, and health. Several budget support operations were also implemented that aimed to improve public sector management.
