Cape Verde - Poverty reduction strategy paper : preparation status report and joint IDA-IMF staff assessment (English)

The Executive Boards of the IMF and IDA concluded in April 2002 that the government's interim poverty reduction strategy paper (interim PRSP) provided a sound basis for developing a fully participatory PRSP and for Fund and World Bank concessional financial assistance. At that time, the authorities expected to complete the full PRSP by May 2003. The government has decided to delay the completion of the PRSP until November 2003, to provide more time for the completion of work on the poverty profile, policy prioritization, the poverty indicators, program costing, and the incorporation of feedback from the final round of consultations. As the PRSP was not finished within one year of their initial interim PRSP, the authorities have prepared a PRSP preparation status report (PRSP PSR) for presentation to the Boards of the IMF and IDA. The report details the main activities that have been completed to date, identifies the remaining actions for completion, and notes that progress has been made regarding the planning process, data collection, poverty analysis, expansion of the participatory process, and strengthening of the institutional framework. Progress has been realized in most of the key areas highlighted in the joint staff assessment of the interim PRSP. In the area of data collection, the staffs are encouraged by the completion of the household income and expenditure survey, which, together with the 2000 census, will form the basis of the poverty analysis in the PRSP. The completion of three sectoral and one general public expenditure reviews will enable the authorities to make informed decisions regarding the prioritization of public expenditures. Implementation of the recommendations contained in the recently completed CFAA will strengthen budgetary control, accountability, and transparency.
