analyze the effect of policy on poverty results. In order to focus the practical implementation of the poverty reduction strategy and to provide a better framework for monitoring progress, the setting of a poverty reduction baseline path with intermediary targets before 2010 should be considered. The selected core indicators—e.g. income poverty, maternal and child mortality, access to primary education and health care services—constitute a good attempt to utilize the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) framework, and the current range of selected core indicators would
This paper presents the Joint Staff Assessment of the State Program on Poverty Reduction and Economic Development 2003–2005 (SPPRED)—the first full Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) of Azerbaijan. The SPPRED represents a joint effort between the government and civil society in the country. There remain areas where progress needs to be made during the implementation and subsequent updates of the SPPRED. The poverty analysis has improved compared with the Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (I-PRSP).
MDGframework comprises of 8 goals, 18 targets and 48 indicators. Most targets are to be achieved over a 25 year period, from 1990 to 2015.
The MDG goals and targets are set on at the global level. Azerbaijan is now embarking on the task of setting country-specific goals and targets. The table below summarizes the results of the country discussion to date.

Goal 1 : Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
Goal 1 : Reduction of poverty

increase foreign aid per capita from around US$11 in 2004/05 to over US$65 by 2015/16. The first generation MDGframework arrived at a remarkably similar estimate of US$63 in per-capita aid by assuming a doubling of ODA as a share of GDP. However, the composition and sequencing of the scaled-up spending differs significantly with the focus in the second-generation model on frontloaded infrastructure. The MDG scenario described in what follows corresponds to the scenario summarized in Table 6 .

This paper outlines the challenge of developing an operational macroeconomic framework in Ethiopia consistent with the large envisaged scaling up of aid to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This paper describes an MDG scenario that addresses both microeconomic and macroeconomic constraints, such as the need to boost sustainable growth, limit Dutch disease, formulate an exit strategy from aid dependency, enhance public financial management (PFM), and expand the supply of skilled labor. The paper will argue that a carefully sequenced MDG strategy is essential so that the scaled-up aid and public spending will remain in line with Ethiopia's absorptive capacity.
have them adopted.
In the health sector: The MSP/LCE has a Health Development Plan (PDS) 2005-2009. All the activities to be carried out during the period must be based on this plan, which is part of the PRS and MDGframework. The outlooks for 2005 and 2006 involve implementation of the following action plan:
1. Increase health coverage
Transformation of 50 rural health clinics into Integrated Health centers (CSIs)
Conduct roving activities from the CSIs
Development of experimental mobile teams in 5 districts
Delimitation of health areas at the CSIs
time established the poverty rate at 64 per cent. The MDGframework sets forth the challenge to half this number by 2015, and it was clear that post-war realities in Liberia will continue to hinder the achievement of this goal. Accordingly, the Government of Liberia, along with development partners, aimed to reduce the poverty rate in Liberia by four percentage points. Therefore the goal of the three-year Lift Liberia PRS is to bring down the poverty rate from 64% to 60% over the three year period ending June 2011.

Preparation of the individual SIPs was done in a progressive fashion, with experience from the initial phases of the work being used to strengthen subsequent analysis and support inter-agency discussions on sectoral priorities and linkages. Key points about the process used to prepare the individual SIPs are as follows:
Each SIP includes a statement of goals and objectives for the sector as set forth in the Constitution, the NDP or the MDGframework. Where practical, these have
