The World Bank approved April 9 a USD111 million development policy operation program to provide budget support and expedite the implementation of public spending reforms in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Reforms supported by the initiative focus on strengthening cash-transfer programs that target some of the country’s most vulnerable families and individuals.
Meanwhile, Senegal is set to receive USD8 million from the World Bank in support of a new project that seeks to improve the country’s justice sector. The loan will be spent primarily for building the capacity of CEDAF, which is responsible for implementing Senegal’s justice sector-related reforms. A portion of the money will also be used to improve the country’s investment climate.
