Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective of this programmatic operation is to tackle the micro-foundations of inclusive and resilient growth by:

  1. strengthening the resilience of individuals against shocks and
  2. creating an enabling environment for economic opportunities in rural communities.

The proposed operation is the second in a series of two programmatic operations aimed at supporting the Government in its objective of promoting growth and reducing poverty. The operation supports reforms related to civil registration, social protection and the financial sector to build the foundations for resilience at the individual
and household level. The operation also supports reforms on land, local government transfers, road maintenance and energy to increase the ability of rural communities to be included and benefit from Madagascar’s recent positive macro-economic developments.

  1. The first pillar seeks to build the foundations for resilience at the individual and household level. Repeated shocks – ranging from frequent climatic shocks, including hurricanes, droughts and floods, to macroeconomic and health shocks – have tested the resilience of Madagascar’s poor in the past five decades leading to a reversal of the little progress that had been made in terms of poverty reduction. Limited access to social safety nets and financial services made it difficult for individuals to get through these crises and to rebuild livelihoods after shocks.
  2. The second pillar focuses on enabling rural inclusion, by supporting economic opportunities in local communities. Close to 80 percent of Madagascar’s population live in rural areas, and rural poverty rates are nearly twice as high as in urban areas. Limited access to infrastructure services and low returns on their assets – which are land, education and health – are holding the rural poor back.
