The Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Shared Prosperity (SCAPP) prepared by the Mauritanian Government upon completion of the PRSP (2001–15) covers the period 2016–30, which corresponds to that of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The strategy was formulated with the participation of the various actors involved, namely the Sectoral Technical Committees (CTS) at the ministerial department level, representatives of the decentralized administrations, representatives of national and local elected officials, civil society, the private sector, academics, youth, women, Mauritanians living abroad, contacts, and Technical and Financial Partners (TFPs). Once the process was completed, two volumes were drafted: (i) A social, economic, institutional, and environmental diagnostic assessment of the country; and (ii) Strategic Guidelines and Action Plan 2016–20 of the SCAPP. Following are the principal conclusions and guidelines of the two volumes.
