2009-2013 - Namibia - Country Strategy Paper
The Country Strategy Paper (CSP) for Namibia, 2009-2013 is the Bank’s medium term strategy aimed at assisting the country to address its development challenges in a coordinated and consultative manner. The Bank Group priority areas in the CSP are aligned with the country’s development agenda as enunciated in the Third National Development Plan (NDP3) which was approved by the Government in June 2008. The CSP has three major pillars: enhancing the competitiveness of the private sector through the development of capacity and infrastructure (rail and road transport, energy and water); investing in rural infrastructures and irrigation systems to increase agricultural productivity and enhance food security; and, trade and regional integration. In addition, the Bank will provide advisory services through economic and sector work and assist in developing appropriate institutional capacity.
