Comprehensive Poverty Reduction and Growth Strategy (CPRGS)
The Comprehensive Poverty Reduction and Growth Strategy (CPRGS) Paper is an action plan that translates the Government's Ten-Year Socio-economic Development Strategy, Five-Year Socio-economic Development Plan as well as other sectoral development plans into concrete measures with well-defined road maps for implementation. This is an action plan for realizing economic growth and poverty reduction objectives... The CPRGS paper sees a harmony between economic growth and measures to solve social problems. The tasks and objectives contained in the poverty reduction and growth strategy not only calls for targeted measures to support specific poverty groups, but also sees important linkages within the matrix of policies that include macroeconomic policies, policies on structural adjustment, sectoral development policies and measures, and social safety net policies of all sectors and levels that must work in tandem to ensure sustainable development.
