The latest funds support Burkina Faso's Third Growth and Competitiveness Operation, the third in a line of activities that support the government's new generation of poverty reduction strategy papers, the Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Sustainable Development (Strategie pour la Croissance Acceleree et le Developpement Durable - SCADD
), adopted on March 16, 2011 .
For the remainder of the program through mid-2013, the policy agenda is aimed at ensuring increased resources directed toward implementation of the authorities development program, the SCADD
(Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Sustainable Development).
The operation seeks to meet the Government's budgetary financing needs to support the implementation of growth-enhancing strategic priorities under the Second Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP-II) and the Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Sustainable Development (SCADD
), mainly in relation to public investment, service delivery, and job creation, while providing resources as the country may begin to absorb the effects of the Ivorian crisis and the surge in the international oil and food prices.
