Project General Description

The Public Investment Management Support Project (PIMSP) is an institutional support to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Development (MAED) to manage public investment. It responds to the need for institutional capacity building in public investment management for the implementation of the strategic framework of the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP). The project is structured around two main components. The first aims to improve economic planning and strengthen the identification, development, monitoring and assessment of public investment projects. The second one is dedicated to strengthening the capacity of the Directorate General for Projects and Investment Programs (DGRPP) responsible for project monitoring and implementation. Its implementation will allow to obtain: (i) in the short term, a better allocation and execution of the investment budget according to the PRSP priorities (by integrating the gender and employment dimension) and an improvement in the absorption capacity of public resources; and (ii) in the longer term, more inclusive economic growth contributing to a reduction of gender inequalities.

Project Objectives

The PIMSP objective is to improve public investment efficiency for strong and inclusive economic growth. Its operational objectives are: (i) to improve public investment planning and linkages between the various planning tools in line with the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP); and (ii) build capacity for identification, development, implementation, monitoring and assessment of public investment projects.


The project's direct beneficiaries are: (i) the structures of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Development (MAED) in charge of elaborating, implementing, monitoring and assessing the Public Investment Program, and monitoring the PRSP; (ii) Ministry staff whose capacity for project design, monitoring and assessment will be strengthened; and (iii) civil society whose capacity will be consolidated and their views taken into account through their involvement in certain project activities. PIMSP will indirectly benefit the Mauritanian population as a whole. Women, as well as youths and other vulnerable groups, will benefit from public investment projects and specific budget allocations thanks to budgeting consistent with PRSP priorities.
