Citizen-Government Dialoguing for Pro-Poor Policies and Evaluating Public Policies for Poverty Reduction: Tools, Techniques and Processes
28 Jun 2005 - 30 Jun 2005
An overall objective of the workshop is to draw lessons from Eastern and Southern African countries on the approaches to the evaluation of impact of public policies on poverty reduction. In addition, it is to support the development and to disseminate methodologies for pro-poor economic policies in the context of sub-Saharan Africa. Related to this is to help formulate an action plan that would contribute to systematically evaluate the impact of public policies on poverty reduction. On the process side of the workshop the objectives sought are, in part, to sensitize the participants to the importance of Citizen-Government Dialogue for pro-poor policies. Strengthening the capacities of Civil Society Organizations to deal with government, and vice versa, is also a key objective.
