ABOUT

Under the transition government that came into power in August 2005, Mauritania committed to a number of important governance and anti-corruption reforms that were expected to continue after the democratic elections in March 2007. In addition to adhering to the UN and African Union conventions against corruption, the government took steps to ensure transparent management of oil revenues, begun implementing the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), launched improvements in public financiwillal management systems, and announced the preparation of a national anti-corruption strategy. Seizing this window of opportunity, the World Bank and other donors launched an effort in 2007 to actively assist the government in these efforts through technical assistance and capacity building activities.

In this vein, the Mauritanian government made an enthusiastic request to WBI for assistance in implementing a governance diagnostic. The diagnostic was to form part of an innovative sectoral governance approach which focuses on the sub-national governance issues affecting key sectors.

With the financial support of the Norwegian Trust Fund and BNPP, the World Bank, in collaboration with the Government of Mauritania, launched the Mauritania Sectoral Governance Diagnostic in November 2007. Stakeholder workshops and meetings with public officials were held to secure local participation in the project. By the spring of 2008, a local private statistical firm had been selected, via an international and transparent procurement process, to conduct 3 surveys (household, enterprise and public official). In early August 2008, in the midst of the first data collection (of enterprises), the country experienced a coup d’état. Fortunately, the enterprise data collection was completed, but the political volatility made collection of household and public officials’ data impossible. The project was put on hold in the midst of the political uncertainty. In late spring 2009, a decision was made to finalize and close out the project. A final report was submitted in May 2009 summarizing the results of the enterprise data collection.
