Cameroon - National Governance Programme Support Project - Project Completion Report (PCR)
During the period 1997-2000, the Government of Cameroon implemented a medium-term economic and financial programme, with the support of donors, which produced encouraging results and an average annual real GDP growth rate of 4.5%. As from 2000, the Government embarked on a new three-year public finance consolidation programme, with emphasis on improved governance. It is within this context that Cameroon prepared an interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) and was able to reach the HIPC initiative decision point in October 2000. Cognisant of the fact that despite some progress at the macroeconomic level, the country still needed to improve the efficiency of public resource management and eliminate the major obstacles to development, stemming mainly from the malfunctioning of the State and the judicial system, the Government prepared a National Governance Programme (NGP), with the support of UNDP.
