Detailed description of project Back
After a first Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (2003-2005), Benin has recently entered the second phase of the PRSP process with the development of a new strategy for the period 2007-2009. The strategy provides the overall and unique framework for public interventions of the government and thus for the harmonisation of development partners’ support.
Each year, the development partners and the Government of Benin agree on timing between September and October to undertake a review of the overall budget support as well as of the implementation of the PRSP as part of the preparation of the annual progress report. A first joint review took place on 20th September 2007. From 2003 to date; the Dutch Embassy did provide successive budget support for a total of some 25 millions Euros.
The current review mission aims at analyzing jointly with development partners the overall performance realized in 2007 and 2008, possibly justifying continued budget support to the PRSP, on the basis of criteria to be determined, and to examine perspectives for 2009.
