The Programme to Support Energy Sector Reform (PARSE) in Madagascar is the first in a series of programmes that will support the strengthening of the energy sector as part of the Bank's intervention strategy for Madagascar, covering the period 2017 - 2021. The programme will support structural reforms to improve electricity supply, which will benefit vulnerable groups who do not have the financial resources to acquire back-up generators to be supplied with electricity during power outages. This program has two components: (i) the improvement of JIRAMA's governance framework and financial management; and (ii) the improvement of JIRAMA's production and quality of service. As a budget support operation, the implementation of the programme's reforms will provide the State with the necessary budgetary space to improve the provision of essential social services to the population, particularly in hospitals, schools and businesses. This will have a positive impact on the quality of health and education of the population and on job creation.
The main objective of PARSE is to contribute to the elimination of constraints to the development of the electricity sub-sector in Madagascar, while creating favourable conditions for investment and inclusive growth. The specific objectives are as follows: (i) to contribute to the improvement of JIRAMA's performance (governance and financial management); and (ii) to improve the efficiency of JIRAMA production and service quality.
The direct beneficiary of the programme is JIRAMA. Indirect beneficiaries are people served with better quality electricity: households, whose living conditions will be improved, and socio-economic operators, whose activities will be more profitable. The final beneficiary of the programme is the whole population, not only the 15% of the population who have access to electricity, but also those who, thanks to improved services, could be connected to the grid.
