World Bank*

The World Bank's Country Partnership Framework (CPF) with Madagascar for 2017–2021. the CPF aims to strengthen resilience and reduce the country's fragility, while promoting inclusive economic growth. Recommendations from the analysis of the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD), published in 2015, served as a basis for formulating CPF priorities: (1) improve governance; (2) strengthen public finances, improve public services, and the financing of key investments; (3) implement policies benefiting the private sector; (4) develop human capital; and (5) reduce poverty, in particular by improving the living conditions of the poor living in rural areas. On this basis, the World Bank and the Malagasy Government have set three priority goals to be achieved by 2021:1)Reduce stunting in children under five years of age by 1 percentage point per annum in areas where chronic malnutrition rates are highest 2)Increase the number of children completing the primary school cycle by 25%; 3)Increase the rate of access to electricity to 20%. To achieve these outcomes, IDA will allocate $1.3 billion to Madagascar over the next five years to finance interventions in the areas of early childhood, resilient agriculture, financial inclusion, and energy.All told, the World Bank Group is financing the implementation of 16 operations representing a total commitment of $838 million, of which $372 million has already been disbursed. The agricultural sector accounts for the majority of commitments (35%), followed by infrastructure, energy, private sector support (30%), education and social protection (21%), and public administration (14%).

In addition it will contribute to improving macroeconomic reform and the management of public funds as well as advancing social governance and increasing the capacity of relevant public institutions and non-state actors. Additional support will be available for measures to promote good governance and regional integration. The multi-annual indicative programme for Madagascar under the 10th EDF amounts to €589.2 million to address these priorities. EC interventions in Madagascar also take account of cross-cutting issues in particular gender HIV/AIDS and environmental issues.
