Interim Strategy Note

The World Bank has developed an Interim Strategy Note [ISN] for Swaziland to govern its relationship in that country with active participation from government and other stakeholders. 

The ISN presents a two-year program of support tailored to the particular circumstances of Swaziland. The country has suffered from slow economic growth for over a decade, but the economy has been improving recently, bolstered by increased revenue inflows from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), leading to a fiscal surplus for the first time in many years. 

In spite of this progress, the Kingdom faces tremendous economic and social challenges. One of the biggest is HIV/AIDs. Swaziland is at the epicenter of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic. It now finds itself facing a social disaster of historic dimensions. 

The ISN addresses this and other issues where the World Bank will partner with the government to tackle challenges.
