Second Poverty Reduction and Strategy Paper (PRSP II) covering an implementation period of 5
years (2007 – 2011), outlines our overall policy framework for Growth and Poverty Reduction. It
also shows key priority areas, and builds on the long – term development objectives for attaining
the MDGs and Vision 2020. The PRSP II is the main framework that defines the overall
government development planning and budget process for achieving meaningful progress,
prosperity, sustainable development, and poverty reduction. The priorities articulated are to be
implemented through sector plans, and financed through allocations from the annual budget, and
complemented by donor contribution. The annual PRSP II budget also integrates the MDGs into
the current planning processes. The PRSP II document should be used along with the supportive
documents, such as the Action Plan and MDG Needs Assessment Report.
