To support the government’s long-term development strategy, the overarching objective of this country programme is to promote a more inclusive economy and society benefiting from shared and sustainable economic growth, thereby breaking the cycle of persistent poverty and vulnerabilities to shocks. The developmental pathways that lead to this objective include one of inclusive growth policies (mid- to long-term), combined with simultaneous investments in livelihoods for at-risk populations, especially in the Red Sea coastal areas (immediate term).

Due to the high reliance of the population on natural resources, this growth path will have to be accompanied by investments in sustainable natural resource management and disaster risk management to build resilience.

Furthermore, it will be underpinned by a development pathway focused on public sector strengthening that will promote international engagement, strengthening community participation in policy formulation and project implementation and improving service delivery.
