Project General Description

The Government Social Programme Support Project (PA-PS GOUV) is an integrated multisector operation. This intervention cohesively designed by taking into account the achievements and lessons drawn from operations already financed and ongoing in the Bank and other donors’ portfolios. PA-PS Gouv will be implemented over three years. Its total cost is EUR 140.69 million with a Bank contribution in the form of an ADB loan of EUR 112.09 million, excluding all taxes and customs duties. The project is in synergy with the Budget Support Programme being appraised by the Bank under PS Gouv. Some of the reforms proposed under the Budget Support Programme will be implemented under this project and will also contribute to the smooth execution of the project and future operations. This operation is in keeping with the institutional support project called ‘Support Project for Implementation of the Development Programme for Inclusive Service Delivery’ aimed at building the performance of actors responsible for PND monitoring and evaluation. This support will help to ensure more effective monitoring of the PS Gouv. The main expected outcomes are: (i) increased production and income for about 20,000 farmers, over 50% of whom will be women; (ii) improved access to basic social services; (iii) improved employability of 20,000 young people; and (iii) establishment of 1,360 smalland medium-sized enterprises (SME). The project will also create at least 17,600 permanent jobs and about 8,500 temporary jobs during the infrastructure rehabilitation phase. The project comprises four (4) components, namely: A) Develop social infrastructure and strengthen food security; B) Youth employment and entrepreneurship; C) IEC, studies and capacity building; and D) Project management.
