Comoros Emergency Credit (EERC)

EERC Performance


(i)Uses of funds produced largely positive results.

(ii) Country adopted a new constitution; Anjouan had overcome its isolation

(iii) New lines of confrontation emerged in June 2002 after the election of Union and island governments

Credit Performance:

(i) Credit was ranked marginally satisfactory because it reached the best possible outcome under the difficult circumstances.

(ii) The decentralization sub-component was rated marginally unsatisfactory because of the high prevalence of cars and administrative overheads


(i) Bank can play an important role in transition out of crisis

(ii) Bank should not overestimate its role. Decentralization processes are very complex and, in a crisis context, even more difficult to implement.

  • Recommendations:

  • The decentralization strategy should focus on communes and consider suppressing the regions as well as postponing the set-up of provinces

  • Communes need to be fully in charge over local government affairs

    • Communes should be in charge of raising their own revenues

    • Transfers need to arrive on time;

    • Transfers should be substantially increased to rural communes

  • Improve service delivery within the deconcentrated framework:

    • (i) Creation of clear reporting rights between statistical services at the province and central level

    • (ii) Investing in the analysis, treatment and verification of data at the province and district level
