Project General Description

The proposed operation is an institutional support project designed to complement the institutional support projects (i.e. CBPFEM and GISP), and other partners’ interventions, including the UNDP managed multi-donor support program for Parliament and Auditor General. The project aims to improve transparency and accountability through strengthening public oversight institutions in Zimbabwe. Through this intervention, PoZ and OAG have clearly identified and prioritised their respective capacity building needs and interventions. The Bank will thus play a major role in contributing to strengthening the governance framework by improving the oversight functions of Parliament and OAG. The project has three mutually reinforcing components: (i) improved capacity and effectiveness of Parliament; (ii) enhanced capacity and effectiveness of the Office of Auditor General; and (iii) Project management support. The total cost is estimated at UA 2.2 million.

Project Objectives

The project’s broad development objective is to improve transparency and accountability in the public sector and promote gender equality for inclusive and sustainable economic development. The specific objective is to improve institutional capacity and effectiveness of institutions of public oversight and accountability.


The direct project beneficiaries are: the Parliament of Zimbabwe, the Office of Auditor General, and selected economic and financial governance and gender-related local civil society organisations (such as SAPST, ZELA, TIZ, ZEPARU, ZWRC, and WLA). The indirect beneficiaries are the general population of Zimbabwe, and the private sector, who will benefit from (a) a more transparent and accountable public sector service delivery, and (b) improved participation of civil society in the parliamentary process.
