1996-2008 - Gabon - Country Assistance Evaluation


Gabon is a sparsely populated country with an estimated population of 1.5 million inhabitants (2008). It is the 4th oil producer in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Its cooperation with the African Development Bank dates back to 1974. The aim of this study is to assess the Bank’s assistance in Gabon over the 1996-2008 period and its impact on the country’s development, so as to draw conclusions and make useful recommendations for the future. The evaluation criteria are based on those of the Development Aid Committee (DAC). The Bank’s actions were based on the three Country Strategy Papers (CSPs) prepared during the period.
