From 2018 to 2020,  IDI and CREFIAF are partnering with the Court of Accounts of Niger to strengthen its strategic management systems and initiate long-term capacity development projects.

A team of peers — from the IDI, CREFIAF and the Court of Account of Senegal — are working closely with the Presidents of the Court of Accounts of Niger and his staff to:

  • assess current capacity and needs for development 
  • develop a new strategic plan
  • design and implement a new operational planning process
  • build more effective relationships with external partners, including key stakeholders and development support providers
  • develop project proposals for long-term capacity development support

 Mr Hamza Tchemogo, the SAI Secretary-General, holds that "the signing of the Cooperation Agreement within the framework of the PAP-APP, gives me the pleasant opportunity to praise the efforts made by the IDI and CREFIAF. Also, with the support of other stakeholders, the Nigerien SAI hopes to be propelled from above through the vast capacity building program. On behalf of the First President and all members of the SAI, I am committed to the concrete and continuous implementation of the whole program. The SAI has voluntarily committed itself and will play its own role.”

The support is provided as a part of the Accelerated Peer-Support Partnership programme (PAP-APP). It benefits from funds provided by the Austrian Development Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iceland, and IDI basket funds.
