A New Partnership Framework between Mauritania and the World Bank Group

Between desert and ocean, where Maghreb meets Sub-Saharan Africa, Mauritania is a land of contrasts and transitions. The country enjoys abundant natural resources, a strategic location, and richly diverse cultural and social make‐up. However, Mauritania’s economy is vulnerable to shocks such as climate change, security threats and fluctuations in global commodity prices. The new six-year Country Partnership Framework, that will structure the support of the World Bank Group to Mauritania, will focus on creating the conditions for sustainable and equitable growth with an IDA 18 allocation of around $215 million along with the full range of advisory services and instruments from IFC and MIGA.
