Project General Description

The Program for Supporting Inclusive Regional Development - Phase II (PADRI-II) is the second phase of a programmatic series of two sector budget support operations to the Tunisian State over the 2016-2017 / 2017-2018 period. The program is implemented in the following 16 priority governorates: Jendouba, Kasserine, Kairouan, Siliana, Sidi Bouzid, Kef, Tataouine, Beja, Gafsa, Medenine, Mahdia, Gabes, Kebili, Zaghouan, Tozeur and Bizerte. As an extension of PADRI- approved in November 2016, PADRI-II is articulated around three components in line with the operational objectives of the first phase: (i) Improving the economic inclusion of the 16 priority governorates; (ii) Strengthening social inclusion at the local and regional levels; and (iii) Supporting local and regional governance. The total cost is 100 MUC (122 million euros), disbursable in one installment.

Project Objectives

PADRI II aims to contribute to inclusive growth in Tunisia through the reduction of regional disparities and social inclusion. The specific objectives are: (i) to improve the economic inclusion of the 16 priority governorates; (ii) reduce social disparities within and between regions and; (iii) promote local and regional development.


The Tunisian population as a whole is considered to be a beneficiary of the PADRI-II Program, with a particular focus on the inhabitants of the priority governorates. In fact, the inhabitants of the sixteen priority governorates are the direct beneficiaries of this program. The indirect beneficiaries will be the national and international investors who will benefit from the increase of public investment in the regions, capacity building in terms of project ownership of local authorities, the establishment of governance bodies investment and the creation of new generations of industrial infrastructures thus facilitating market access for SMEs and improving the socio-economic environment in these disadvantaged regions; thus reducing the interregional gap.
