Understanding the Institutions for Monitoring Poverty Reduction Strategies

Agulhas provided support to the World Bank drafting the report called Beyond The Numbers.

This manual aims to provide lessons on the design and functioning of Poverty Reduction Strategies (PRS) monitoring systems, based on the experience of twelve PRS countries. The focus is on the institutional arrangements of PRS systems – the rules and processes which bring the various actors and monitoring activities together in a coherent framework.

The World Bank and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID)  jointly commissioned a series of case studies on the experience of PRS monitoring in thirteen countries:

Africa: Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Tanzania and Uganda

Latin America: Bolivia, Guyana, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru

Europe and Central Asia: Albania and Kyrgyzstan.
