The main objective of the project is to achieve sustainable and inclusive economic development by: (i) increasing productivity in selected economic sectors and (ii) improving transparency in selected government decision making processes.
The proposed operation is the second in a programmatic series of three operations to support the implementation of the Government’s priorities articulated in the “New Direction Manifesto” and the forthcoming PRSPIV (2019 – 2023). The proposed operation covers six policy areas namely: agriculture (including fisheries and land),
energy, education, extractives, public financial management (TSA and e-procurement), and asset disclosure. These areas are consistent with the Government’s “New Direction Manifesto”, the forthcoming PRSPIV (2019 – 2023) as well as the findings of the SCD (2018). The design of the series has incorporated lessons from previous development policy operations including the first operation under this series (PTSC-I). The program will focus on a limited number of transformational structural reforms necessary for boosting productivity, unlocking inclusive growth, and diversifying the economy. Transparency and accountability issues were mainstreamed into the framework for the main productive sectors as well as in education.
