Guinea-Bissau - Interim strategy note for the period FY09-FY10 (Português)

This Interim Strategy Note (ISN) presents the proposed Bank Group assistance to Guinea-Bissau through December 2010. It aims at addressing selected, critical challenges within the confines of International Development Association's (IDA'S) limited resource envelope for Guinea-Bissau, and at supporting the Government in its efforts to implement a basic transitional program in a challenging environment. At the same time, the ISN highlights the low level equilibrium trap in which Guinea-Bissau has been mired this past decade and underscores the limits of an approach that is too exclusively focused on crisis containment, which has produced the 'muddling through' results of the last decade. It advocates for a stronger, more ambitious approach in the medium term, requiring a sustained critical mass of resources from external partners, including the World Bank Group. These resources are essential to break the interlocking vicious circles of economic and political instability in which Guinea-Bissau has been trapped for the last ten years since the 1998-99 civil war. The ISN financing is being front-loaded. It proposes a programmatic series of two development policy operations, IDA and trust fund financing of investments notably in rural areas, and Technical Assistance (TA) for improved economic management. In addition, ongoing multi-sector infrastructure financing, coastal and biodiversity support and new financing through the State and Peace-building Fund (for economic management, participatory rural development and health), will continue to support efforts to increase access to public services. Furthermore, support for an expansion of quality primary education under the education-for-all/fast-track-initiative is under preparation.
