Project General Description

The Economic Recovery and Inclusive Development Support Programme (PARDI) is a continuation of the Governance and Inclusive Development Support Programme (PAGDI), the achievements of which will be consolidated. It also strengthens the achievements of the following projects: Médenine – Rasjedir Highway, Rural Drinking Water Supply (through Access to Basic Services and Reduction of Regional Disparities), Wastewater Quality Improvement, Line of Credit to SMEs and Road Project VI. This programme aims to meet the immediate needs expressed by popular demand from the Revolution such as the fight against unemployment and regional disparities, and greater transparency in public affairs management. It will also address the claims made by the population regarding access to quality services, job creation and enhancement of transparency and participation. Its components includes: (i) reducing regional disparities and combatting exclusion; (ii) boosting inclusive growth, increasing employability and competitiveness; and (iii) strengthening citizen participation, accountability and transparency. PARDI will be implemented over 12 months and will be disbursed in a single tranche.

Project Objectives

The programme’s goal is to revive the economy and foster the conditions for inclusive growth. The programme’s specific objective is to contribute to the restoration of socioeconomic stability to support the democratic transition in Tunisia.


The end program beneficiary is the Tunisian population as a whole. The main intermediary beneficiaries are: (i) public and private sectors to be supported by the measures making up the Government’s program; (ii) people in under-served regions, who will have better access to social services; (iii) young graduates and long-term unemployed, who will have greater job opportunities; and (iv) the civil population, which will benefit from a higher degree of citizen voice and accountability in public affairs.
