Project General Description

The Fifth Structural Adjustment Program (SAP V) is an extension of SAP IV, which is supported by the African Development Bank Group. At the end of SAP IV’s implementation, it seemed not only that some structural measures such as the privatization of state-owned enterprises and the financial sector reform had been delayed, but more generally, that the large number of measures to be taken exceeded the country’s institutional capacity. This program aims to contribute to sustainable and sustained economic growth for poverty reduction and to promote sustainable development in Niger. The reform measures and the relating performance indicators were defined on the basis of the programme’s two components, namely: (i) improvement of public finance management; and (ii) promoting good governance as well as strengthening monitoring-evaluation of the Poverty Reduction Strategy and the Programme. The first component aims at intensifying domestic resource mobilization and improving the efficacy and efficiency of public expenditure and enhancing the public expenditure programmes aimed at poverty reduction. The second component aims at promoting good governance, strengthening the decentralization and improving monitoring-evaluation of the programmes and the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS).

Project Objectives
