Assessment of Poverty Reduction Strategies in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Case of Ethiopia

edited by OSSREA

The main goal of the OSSREA project on Poverty Reduction Strategies in sub-Saharan Africa, from which this book is derived, was to analyse the ongoing poverty reduction strategy processes (PRSP) and provide guidance to policymakers and advocacy groups in selected countries. The specific objectives were: i) To assess the core elements of the poverty reduction strategies with respect to the desired targets; ii) To analyse the feasibility of envisaged approaches in implementing the strategies and sustainability of outcomes; iii) In relation to the above, to assess the monitoring and evaluation indicators as well as the institutional aspects of the implementation of strategies; and iv) To analyse the role of IMF conditionalities and other regional and global issues relevant to the process, including debt reduction, market access and foreign investment.

The project followed a case study country approach and identified six countries from Eastern and Southern Africa, namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.
