Summary:

This paper examines Niger’s sixth review under the three-year arrangement under the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF). A successor PRGF-supported program would support the authorities’ efforts to move toward meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) while preserving economic stability. Among the risks to the new program are adverse climatic shocks, higher food and international oil prices, and the insurgency in the North. IMF staff supports the requests for the waivers for nonobservance of two performance criteria, and the request for a new PRGF arrangement.
