This document begins with an introduction, the chapters are then organised as follows: challenges to effective PRS implementation, issues that affect PRS implementation, PRSP implementation in the NIS - key challenges, conclusions: lessons learned and recommendations, and finally annexes.
This study examines the implementation of the PRS from the moment of approval of the PRSP itself. Implementation of the PRS process in this respect means (a) implementing the PRSP itself (i.e. undertaking the actions it contains in its plan of action) (b) learning from the results of the actions, and (c) amending the strategy and actions accordingly. The study is focussed on process and not the contents of the PRSP. In terms of the contents the interest is only on those elements that affect implementation (for example capacity building or budget system reform).
