According to bank documents, the objective of the project is to contribute to poverty reduction through faster and more inclusive economic growth. Specifically, the support aims to: (i) strengthen the country's capacities for better integration of structural vulnerability factors into public policies; (ii) study the manufacturing sector with a particular focus on agro-industrial value chains; (iii) study the political economy of energy sector reform; (iv) prepare the reform and investment framework for the promotion of the blue economy.
The present intervention concerns the Support Project for Capacity Building for the Analysis of Structural Vulnerability Factors and the Promotion of the Blue Economy (ARCEB). It aims to fill the knowledge gap by supporting the design and implementation of reforms and policies to accelerate the achievement of the African Development Bank's "High-5" priorities in Madagascar. The project has three main components: (a) capacity-building for public policy analysis; (b) support for the promotion of the blue economy; and (c) support for the coordination of activities.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or email@example.com. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/.
