Project General Description

The present intervention is related to the Economic Reform Support Programme (PARE). It was conceived because for almost ten years, the Central African Republic (CAR) experienced recurring politico-military conflicts that had a devastating effect on the country's socio-economic situation and contributed to: (i) loss of life and displacement of populations; (ii) the destruction of social and economic infrastructures; and (iii) the deterioration of socio-economic indicators. The PARE aims to support the implementation of the reforms contained in the Framework Document for Economic and Social Policy (DCPES) and thus contribute to the Government's efforts to improve the governance and efficiency of the State, to revive the economy of the CAR and lay the foundation for sustained economic growth. It should also support the anti-poverty strategy. The program is structured around two components: (i) improving and strengthening public financial management and; ii) strengthening good governance.

Project Objectives

The PARE aims to support the Government's efforts in implementing the measures contained in the Development Policy Letter and more particularly in the implementation of reforms aimed at increasing the efficiency of poverty alleviation expenditures, support for improving the business climate and developing the private sector and strengthening good governance.


The programme should benefit the entire Central African population.
