Poverty and Growth

The Poverty and Growth Program (PGP) aims to enhance the capacity of poor and middle-income countries to design and implement effective poverty reduction strategies. Customized “country learning programs” are used to leverage the resources of the development community to fight against the deprivation, vulnerability and powerlessness of poverty.
For low income countries this support takes place, during all stages, within the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) framework.  For middle income countries, PGP assists in either the overall poverty strategy or in analysis and evaluation of a specific set of poverty reduction policies.
