Government, Donors and Poverty Reduction in Ethiopia
[ TOC ] [ PDF Download ] [ Abstract ]
Consultation Paper On Poverty: No. 6 The focus of discussion of FSS’ Series of Poverty Dialogues has been the Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (I-PRSP), which the Government of Ethiopia had submitted to the World Bank and the IMF. The public discussions have provided appropriate forums for different stakeholders, including the government, the business community, donors and civil society organizations to conduct a meaningful dialogue on enhancing their participation in the PRSP process. Apart from sensitizing the Government of Ethiopia about the need for civil society participation, the public discussions have also generated constructive suggestions to improve the poverty reduction policy document.
