The FY2008-11 Country Assistance Strategy CAS is being implemented through a multi-sectoral program of assistance which is closely aligned with the government's development objectives identified in Zambia's Fifth National Development Plan (FNDP) which covered the period 2006-10 and the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) which was launched by Government in February 2011 and covers the period 2011-15. To ensure consistency with Government's development objectives the FY2008-11 CAS was organized around four overlapping areas: (i) macroeconomic and expenditure management; (ii) institutional capacity enhancement; (iii) infrastructure development; and (iv) social sector development. Supporting good governance is a theme that runs across the CAS with extensive political economy diagnostics informing the Bank's dialogue with the authorities and governance related initiatives mainstreamed across the Bank's entire portfolio in the country. Within the broader program of support the CAS gives special emphasis to two areas: improved transparency and management of fiscal resources with particular emphasis on revenues mobilized from the copper sector; and increased competitiveness both through reforms in the policy environment and targeted investments to bridge the infrastructure gap in order to increase employment opportunities for the population through improved connectivity and integration.

European Commission*
