New participation study

15 December 1999

The Institute of Developoment Studies is reviewing participatory approaches to formulating and monitoring poverty reduction strategies. The project will synthesize experiences and make recommendations to the IMF and Bank for drawing up, implementing and monitoring PRSPs.

The assessment will focus particularly on:

  • experiences or documentation from outside the Bank;
  • civil society both as actors in policy formulation, and in monitoring policy implementation,and;
  • how participatory initiatives can best build participants’ capacity for ongoing engagement with policy processes.
