Key Information

The development objectives of the Third Fiscal Management, Education, Energy, and Cocoa Reforms Development Policy Financing (DPF) Project for Cote d'Ivoire are to: (i) enhance tax revenue collection and public procurement; (ii) strengthen efficiency and equity in the education sector; (iii) improve the performance of the electricity sector by enabling private sector participation and diversification; and (iv) consolidate transparency in the management of the cocoa sector. The DPF series aims at supporting the government to reinforce fiscal management and strengthen the education, energy, and cocoa sectors. The government’s strategy has been defined in the recently adopted national development plan (NDP) for the period 2016‐2020. This DPF follows the maximizing finance for development approach to leverage further investments from the private sector. In addition to addressing fiscal challenges and helping promote inclusive growth, the DPF is contributing to attracting private investment in two strategic sectors ‐ energy and cocoa, including through close synergies between the interventions of the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
