Angola-Mozambique - Gas Monetization for Economic Development - Project Study - Full Report

Angola and especially Mozambique have significant natural gas resources which are in the process of being monetized to promote their domestic economies and provide government revenue. For Angola we investigate options for reserves varying between 13 and 25 Tcf, for Mozambique we consider reserve estimates between 97 and 192 Tcf. We have evaluated eight different large industries, and assessed their economic viability under three price forecasts. The results of our netback analysis are given in the chart below.

Liberia - Rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (RWASH) Program Development - Project Study

The rationale for the project can be put in the broader context of the Bank’s support for Liberia’s emergence from a recent past of conflict to a path of stability, growth and poverty reduction, accompanied by improved infrastructure rehabilitation and development. Current Development Partners’ support to the Liberian Water Sector is project based, and largely fragmented. Coupled with weak government capacity, this has tended to reduce the efficiencies that would be gained from a programmatic approach, in addition to increased transaction costs, and inability by government to effectively lead...

Guinea - Instituional Support for the National Water Point Management Service (SNAPE) - Project Study

Constraints to the development of the drinking water supply and sanitation sector include weak governance marked by: (i) the low implementation capacity of local authorities (municipalities) to which responsibility for project management and implementation in rural and semi-urban areas has been transferred (excluding the EDG concession); and (ii) the fragmentation of responsibilities among several actors resulting in a continuing project-based approach, despite the adoption of the National Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Programme (NDWSSP) and the National Strategy for Development of...

South Sudan - Small and Medium Towns Water Supply and Sanitation - Feasibility Study and Detailed Design

Despite the availability of surface and ground water resources, evidence suggests that two in three people in the country don’t have access to safe and potable water supply services. Even worse, more than eight out of ten people don’t have access to adequate sanitation services. This situation implies that more than six million people are deprived of access to improved water supply services and about eight million people lack access to improved sanitation services. The low levels of access to safe and potable water supply and adequate sanitation services coupled with poor hygiene awareness...

Tunisia - Road Safety Strategy - Project Study

Under the United Nations’ auspices, the General Assembly adopted a resolution in March 2010 in which 2011-2020 was proclaimed the Decade of Action for Road Safety in order to first stabilize, then half, the number of deaths due to road accidents in the world by multiplying activities at country, regional and global level. A resolution of the same nature was adopted by continental bodies (the African Union and Economic Commission for Africa). To achieve this goal, the Tunisian Government requested the Bank to award a grant under the Technical Assistance Fund for Middle Income Countries (TAF/...

Benin - Ouémé Valley Agricultural Infrastructure Support - Project Preparation Financing (PPF)

Benin is one of the poorest countries in the world. It features among the least developed countries and was classified 166th out of 187 on the Human Development Index (HDI) scale in 20121 . According to the Integrated Household Living Conditions Survey (EMICoV 2010), the incidence of poverty, roughly equivalent to USD 1 2 per day, is about 40.8%. The level is much higher in the rural areas - 51.8% compared to 24% in the urban areas.

Sao Tome and Principe - The Preparation of the National Rural Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Programme by 2030 - Project Study

The Study is part of a broader context of Bank support to the country to enable it cope with drinking water supply and sanitation deficit challenges, and harness water resources to sustainably improve the living conditions of rural populations. Current development partner support is fragmented and based on a project approach, coupled with weaknesses in overall governance, which reduces efficiency compared to a programme approach. Hence, the development of a programming framework for planning, financing and implementation is meant to address the need to harmonize donor contribution and align...

Djibouti - National Rural Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Programme by 2030 - Project Study

The study falls within the context of Bank support to the country to face the challenges of water shortage and the low availability and harnessing of water resources in order to sustainably improve the living conditions of the rural population. Current support from development partners is dispersed and based on a project approach, coupled with the weak capacity of institutions of the sector, compared to the programme approach. Consequently, the need to harmonize the contribution of donors and align with the Government’s priorities justifies the development of a programme framework for the...

Madagascar - Bas-Mangoky Irrigation Scheme Rehabilitation and Extension - Project Prepration Facility

The Government of Madagascar and the Bank identified the agricultural sector as one of their priorities in the “Madagascar Action Plan” and the Country Strategy Paper (CSP) 2005-2009, respectively. The proposal to extend the CSP until end-2013, maintaining the same initial pillars (strengthening of rural infrastructure and governance), was recently submitted to the Bank for approval after the October 2011 mission undertaken to assess the country’s situation. The Bas Mangoky Irrigation Scheme Rehabilitation Project (PRBM), which was financed by the Bank and closed on 31 December 2009, produced...

CAR - Rural Infrastructure Rehabilitation Support Project II - Project Prepration Facility

The Central African economy is dominated by the primary sector, especially agriculture (farming, stockbreeding, fishing, forestry), given the wealth it creates and its contribution to employment, food security and poverty reduction. Agriculture generates 41% of GDP and employs almost 70% of the national labour force. However, despite its enormous resources, the development of CAR's agricultural sector remains precarious. Its annual growth rate of 2% is below the population growth rate (estimated at 2.5%).

Perspectives on the Political Economy of South Sudan

The African Development Bank Group started its lending operations in Sudan in 1971, and has since, provided development support to various sectors, primarily agriculture and infrastructure. However, the Bank Group has not undertaken investment activities in the country since 1995 because of the country’s non-accrual status. Instead, it has been providing technical and emergency assistance and capacity-building support and undertaking studies since the imposition of sanctions, using ADF grants and, lately, resources from the Fragile States Facility.

Seychelles - LA Gogue Water Supply - Project Study

The Seychelles islands had an estimated population of 83,000 as of 2010 with 90% of them living on the Mahe Island. The islands are currently experiencing water shortages with an average of 60% of the current demand being met. The problem is more pronounced on the main island of Mahe due to pressure from an increasing population and demand from the commercial and hotel sectors. The water system suffers from high unaccounted for water (UFW) estimated at around 44% due to an ageing reticulation system which is complex due to the hilly topography of the island. The water shortages being...
