Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, a young champion in private partnerships!
Cote d’Ivoire has +22 million inhabitants and more than 50% of population being under 19; it is a demographically young country, with impressive economic growth rates (7.9% in 2016) and promising potential for private investments and innovation. At the same time social challenges remain important with +45% of the population living in poverty and significant differences on all development indicators among urban and rural areas.
The 2017-2020 Cote d’Ivoire Country Program Document has identified private partnerships as one of the key 5 strategies to deliver the overall program results. The office’s approach in this area focuses on three dimensions:
