World Bank*

The new second African Development Bank/World Bank Joint Partnership Strategy (JPS-2) for FY2013-16 period was discussed by the World Bank Board of Executive Directors on April 4, 2013 - in support of the government’s 2012-15 Program for Accelerated Growth and Employment (PAGE) and proposes to respond to the challenges of the country by concentrating on two main pillars: Pillar 1:Enhancing Productive Capacity and Competitiveness in order to strengthen resilience to External Shocks. This pillar is aligned with elements of PAGE pillars I (Economic Growth), II (Infrastructure) and IV (Governance). Pillar 2:Strengthening the Institutional Capacity for Economic Governance and Public Service Delivery is aligned with elements of PAGE pillars III (Human Capital, Social Services), IV (Governance) and V (Social Cohesion, Cross-cutting interventions).

European Commission*

The Country Strategy Paper for Gambia (2008-2013) presents the strategic framework for EC co-operation with The Gambia under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF). Assistance aims to support the efforts of the Government to address the key issues that are hampering economic and social development. The two priority sectors for co-operation are infrastructure and regional interconnectivity as well as governance. Additional support will be provided for integrated capacity building programmes, institutional support for non state actors as well as activities addressing the issue of legal and illegal migration. EC interventions in The Gambia also take account of poverty-related cross-cutting issues, in particular gender equality, HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability, good governance and human rights, especially children's rights as well as nutrition and health. The EC's total allocation foreseen for The Gambia under 10th EDF funding (2008-2013) amounts to €60.8 million after the mid-term review.
