Niger - Financial Reforms and Food Security Support Programme (PAREFSA II) - Project Completion Report


The programme’s main objective is to help promote robust inclusive growth to reduce poverty and build economic resilience to food crises. The programme responded to the two priorities of the CSP (2013-2017), namely: (i) building resilience to food insecurity, and (ii) strengthening governance and the second pillar of the Bank's Gender Strategy for 2014-2018 aimed at improving women's legal status and property rights. It is also consistent with the Bank's Ten-Year Strategy (2013-2022) and its Governance Action Plan (GAP II 2014-2018). More specifically, it contributes to achieving two strategic priorities of the Bank: (i) "Feed Africa" through measures to strengthen food security, and (ii) "Improve the quality of life for the people of Africa".
