Regional Integration strategy for Sub-Saharan Africa

Department
World Bank/Regional Integration Department/Africa Region
Description

The overarching objective of this paper is to provide a coherent strategic framework to guide the World Bank’s assistance in support of regional integration and regional programs in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). 

Reflecting the priorities and flagships of the revised Africa Action Plan (April 2007), the proposed strategic framework builds on experiences gained in implementing the IDA Regional Pilot Program since 2003 and distills key elements of current thinking regarding the economics of integration, including the (forthcoming) World Development Report 2009.

Activities to be implemented through the SSA-portion of the IDA15 Regional Program constitute the core purview of the proposed strategic framework. However, the strategy also aims to ensure increasingly systematic reflection of regional priorities in the Bank’s country assistance strategies and in Africa-wide sector strategies. In addition, the strategy proposes areas for enhanced World Bank Group collaboration to leverage support for Africa’s regional programs and integration.
