Project Description
This second operation maintains the development objectives of the first operation: (i) foster inclusive growth, and (ii) support to pro- poor decentralized transfers and social protection.


The operation supports the first objective through a set of mutually reinforcing real-sector reforms that should lead to increased incomes for poor rural households. Point of departure are reforms in the provision of agricultural subsidies. This is accompanied by multi-sectoral measures to enhance financial inclusion, improve security of tenure, to expand the mobile phone network, to increase competitiveness in the telecom sector and to improve the performance of the electricity sector. The second objective is operationalized by increasing the coverage and reducing


the fragmentation of the social protection system and by supporting accelerated decentralization. This is an important element of the Peace Agreement as reflected by the commitment to almost double the share of spending by non-central entities (collectivités territoriales) from appr oximately 16% of the budget in 2016 to 30 percent in 2018. As governance remains an area of concern, the Authorities have been notified that good governance is an important prerequisite for the PRIGSOseries as is maintaining macro -economic stability.
