Project Description

The objective of the operation is to support the Government of Cameroon (GoC) in implementing structural reforms to support fiscal adjustment as well as reforms to boost competitiveness and mitigate economic vulnerability. This operation, in the amount of US$200 million, is the first of three Development Policy Financing (DPF) in a programmatic series. The proposed program is aligned with the GoC’s reform program and with the World Bank Group Country (WBG) Partnership Framework for FY17-FY21. The DPF series supports structural reforms that will restore fiscal stability while improving competitiveness and protecting the poor through fiscal adjustment. Reforms would support increased productivity by removing bottlenecks in the infrastructure sector, and higher efficiency and more equitable access to social services, by improving service delivery in health, education and scaling up social protection. They will also address inefficient procurement practices and weak management of public enterprises.
