Togo - Poverty reduction strategy paper progress report and joint IDA-IMF staff advisory note (Inglês)

The Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) for Togo builds on the strategy laid out in the Interim Strategy for Poverty Reduction (I-PRSP) that was presented to the Boards of the International Development Association (IDA) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in April 2008. Drawing on lessons learnt from the implementation of the I-PRSP, the full PRSP lays out the strategy for growth and poverty reduction for the period 2009-2011. The PRSP is coupled with a Plan of Priority Actions (PAP) which details the pluri-annual planning of actions, programs and measures. The ultimate objective of the PRSP is to achieve effective and sustainable improvement of people's living conditions by addressing the principal causes of poverty. The PRSP is a comprehensive strategy covering most of the challenges and areas of action to foster growth and reduce poverty. It is based on four strategic pillars, with the first three common to the I-PRSP: (i) strengthening of governance; (ii) consolidation of the bases for strong and sustained growth; (iii) development of human capital; and (iv) reduction of regional imbalances and promotion of community development. For these pillars, the PRSP integrates cross-cutting themes related to the environment, HIV/AIDS, gender and human rights. Staffs welcome the introduction of the fourth pillar - reduction of regional imbalances and promotion of community development - based on the recognition of the wide disparities between regions in the country. While acknowledging the importance of a comprehensive strategy, staffs consider that given capacity and resources constraints its effective implementation requires the prioritization of reforms.
