Civil Society Global Policy Forum on the PRS Review

On Thursday April 21, 2005,  over 100 labor union, NGOs, parliamentarians, government officials, and donors from over 50 countries came together and provided a critical input into this year’s IMF/World Bank 2005 PRSP Review. This was followed by a day of discussion of Bank Civil Society relations more general.  Recommendations on the PRS day included:

  • Greater policy coherence among donors and programmatic accountability by governments in order to improve the poverty impacts of the PRSPs;
  • Deepened quality of civil society participation; currently there is a widespread sense that CSO input is not reflected in the final versions of PRSPs;
  • Greater attention to monitoring and evaluation, including consideration of a wider set of policy and analytical alternatives.
