The World Bank supports the Judiciary through JPIP with a loan of US$120 million for a six year period to improve court administration, case management, Judiciary training and staff development, court infrastructure and project management. JPIP is in its second year and has made significant progress towards improving the performance of the Judiciary in providing services in a more effective, efficient and accountable manner.
