The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
The Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) prepared by the Burkinabè government forms the principal benchmark for all development actors, and reaffirms the urgency of attacking poverty from a structural perspective. It is the primary tool for coordination of all interventions and of public aid to development. The partnership existing between the government and the various actors under the PRSP makes the latter a powerful tool for resource mobilization. Further more, the PRSP will help in a stable macroeconomic framework by strengthening budget management and public investments.
