                 Resource mobilisation for the funding of a development programme
• Strengthening the process of supporting the administrations in preparing and maturing projects to be included in the BIP. The process registered an innovation in 2017, the organization of extended programming conferences and, in 2018, the signing of Decree N0 2018/4992/ PM on 21 June 2018 setting the rules governing the process of maturation of public investment projects , by the Prime Minister, Head of Government, as well as the signing of Decree N0 2018/366 on 20 June 2018 on the Public Procurement Code by the President of the Republic;
• The publication before the month of January of the journal of projects;
• The organization of launch missions for the implementation of the investment budget;
• Organizing disbursement conferences for counter- part funds from the start of budget implementation;
• Establishing within the administrations perma- nent consultation frameworks relating to the moni- toring of the execution of the BIP and the awar- ding of contracts;
• Regular holding of sessions of the National Committee and local participatory monitoring committees to ensure the smooth implementation of the PIB.
Other actions were carried out, in particular: the development and follow-up of the imple- mentation of the matrices of reforms within the framework of the budgetary support of the World Bank, the European Union and the African Development Bank, as well as the
conduct of negotiations for the disbursement of the AFD's budget support; the continuation of the business upgrade process.
The objective through this programme aims at having development strategies and regional development schemes linked to the objectives of the GESP. At the end of 2017, its technical implementation rate was estimated at 55.55% against 38.8% at the same period in 2016. A result mainly due to the finalization of the sectoral strategies in the sectors of Education, Rural Development, Social Services, Infrastructure, Health and Governance. The finalization of the national scheme and regional land use plans will improve this rate.
At the end of the 2017 financial year, the pro- gramme had implemented actions that enabled to reach various results: the review / update of the programmes was carried out in all the admi- nistrations; the Rural Sector Development Strategy was adopted with the National Agricultural Investment Plan as a framework; the Infrastructure Sector Strategy has been recei- ved; the national social protection policy is in its final phase after the recent consultations held in all regions; the Medium-Term Budget Framework 2018-2020 has been prepared and the study to update the methodological approach for its development has been initia- ted; the planning work for the second phase of the Development Vision has started; work for the third phase of the National Community-Driven Development Programme actually started with as a major element, the inclusion for the first time in its intervention portfolio, of the 31 District Councils not yet covered, etc.
In the same line, we should mention the continua- tion of the implementation of the Poverty Reduction Sub-Program at the Base, which allo- wed the distribution of agricultural equipment during the youth caravan in Ebolowa; and the experimentation of the implementation of the Contract-State / Council Plan started with the Pilot Municipality of Lagdo.
