Effective External Aid for Poverty Reduction?
Evaluation of the Poverty Reduction Strategies in Latin America - 2007 Executive Summary - Bolivia
Niek de Jong , Juan Carlos Aguilar , Kristin Komives
This is the fifth and final annual evaluation report on poverty reduction policies in Bolivia. It focuses on the efficiency and effectiveness of the external aid received by Bolivia since 1995. It examines in particular whether the PRS process changed external aid modalities and if so, whether these changes enhanced efficiency and effectiveness. The report also evaluates changes in the Bolivian government's commitment and capacity to fight poverty. In contrast to previous years, this report does not focus solely on changes observed in the past year, but rather looks at the trends observed throughout the period 1995-2006.
