World Bank*

The Country Partnership Program (CPS) will leverage the full bundle of World Bank Group (WBG) services to complement International Development Association (IDA) resources and help mobilize other development financing. The key principles of engagement involve maintaining Nicaragua's very strong record on project implementation, building scalable programs that can attract additional resources, and leveraging the full breadth of WBG instruments by coordinating IDA, International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) interventions. The Government has agreed to a lending program of one or two new investment projects a year with remaining resources reserved to scale up successful ongoing projects and for emerging challenges. The CPS program is complemented by a series of regional initiatives that address the citizen security agenda, support a greater economic integration through trade facilitation, and aim to reduce disaster risks across Central America. The Bank will coordinate with IMF and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in supporting policy reforms. Although expectations of an ambitious reform agenda on governance are low at this time, the CPS program will renew its emphasis on transparency and monitoring and evaluation. More joint Government and Bank dissemination of good program results and analytical work to stakeholders, including civil society and local academia, may provide an opportunity to build a more substantive governance agenda over the medium term.

European Commission*

Nicaragua is a major recipient of EU development funding in Latin America. This aims mainly to reduce poverty and strengthen democracy. In 2007-2013, the EC foresees to provide €214M in funding for: - governance and democracy (17.5%) - education, particularly vocational training (35%) - macroeconomic support and making Nicaragua more investor friendly (44.5%) institutional support for programmes in specific economic sectors (5%)
