Project Description
The development objective of the First Fiscal Consolidation and Private Sector Support Project for Mauritania is to support fiscal consolidation and private sector participation in non-extractives sectors. It supports two pillars. The first pillar of this operation supports fiscal consolidation by increasing domestic revenues, enhancing fiscal transparency, and increasing the efficiency of public spending. This includes measures designed to enhance the flexibility and responsiveness of fiscal policy, as well as reforms to mitigate systemic fiscal risks. The second pillar supports the economic diversification agenda through increased private sector participation in non-extractives sectors. This includes expanded private sector participation by strengthening the framework for public-private partnerships (PPPs), addressing land tenure and property rights to facilitate credit access, and bolstering livestock exports.
