Project General Description

The Fourth Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP IV), which is an extension of SAP III, consolidates African Development Fund (ADF)’s contribution to the implementation of the Government’s 2000-2003 Reform Programme. Indeed, despite the efforts made over the first two years (2001 and 2002) of the implementation of the Government’s 2000-2003 Reform Programme, backed by the ADF Third Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP III), the Niger economy continues to be characterized by several internal and external imbalances that diminish the country’s capacity to reduce poverty significantly. SAP IV was therefore conceived in a context where the Government wishes to further strengthen the ongoing public finance reforms and to make growth sustainable, as well as to reduce poverty. The implementation of the program should make it necessary for the Government to undertake the following reforms and measures: i) 44 reforms and measures to promote good governance; ii) 21 reforms and measures to strengthen the social sectors ; and iii) 18 reforms and measures to reorganise the financial sector.

Project Objectives

SAP IV is intended to promote good governance and to improve access of the poor to basic social services for a sustainable reduction of poverty. The Programme has three specific objectives, namely: (i) promotion of good governance; (ii) strengthening of social sectors; and (iii) reform of the financial sector.


The project should benefit the entire Nigerien economic system as well as the population.
