This Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy (iPRS), the first to be prepared for Liberia, sets out the emerging processing framework for recovery and reconstruction in the context of post-conflict Liberia. It provides diagnostics of the issues and articulates priority interventions to be pursued by the Government of Liberia and other stakeholders over the period July 2006 through June 2008. The iPRS represents a bridge to a full MDG-based Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) to be launched in July 2008.

The present document is structured into three parts:

Part 1 (chapters 1, 2 and 3) provides historical background to the conflict and the prevailing socio-economic context within which the nation's poverty-reducing strategy is being developed. It also presents key policy choices and directions, as well as elements of Liberia's national vision. Information on the process followed in preparing the iPRS, and the development planning and management framework to ensure a smooth transition to sustained development is also presented in Part 1.

Part 2 (chapters 4, 5, 6 and 7) outlines key elements of the poverty reduction strategy for Liberia and incorporates a number of cross-cutting considerations.

Part 3 (chapters 8 and 9) addresses the challenges of implementing the strategy and concludes with an indicative "road map" for developing the full Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP).
