Strategy and Finances

Financing Strategy

The ARTF Financing Strategy sets the overarching strategic allocation of the fund, including recurrent cost expenditure, the Incentive Program, the O&M Facility and investment financing. The framework covers five priority sectors which correspond to the Government’s development clusters: Agriculture, Rural Development, Infrastructure, Human Development and Governance/Public Sector Capacity.

The Financing Strategy is reviewed in regular meetings of the ARTF Strategy Group and endorsed annually by the Steering Committee. The latest ARTF Financing Strategy 1391-1393 was agreed in April 2012. A first Update was agreed in April 2013 and a third and final Update was agreed in December 2013.
