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.
