Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP)

Background on Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP)

Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP) describe a country's macroeconomic, structural, and social policies and programs to promote growth and reduce poverty, as well as associated external financing needs. PRSPs are prepared by governments through a participatory process that involves civil society and development partners, including the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Guinea-Bissau's presented a full National Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (Documento de Estratégia Nacional para a Redução da Pobreza, DENARP) in September 2006. 

The DENARP covers the period 2007–2010, and is based on the 2025 Vision developed through a participatory process, drawing on long-term prospective “Djitu ten” studies.

The DENARP was presented to development partners at the November 2006 Geneva Round­table. 

It covers four pillars:

  1. Strengthening governance, modernizing the public administration and ensuring macro-economic stability,
  2. Promoting economic growth and job creation,
  3. Increasing access to basic social services and social infrastructure, and
  4. Improving the living condition of vulnerable groups.
