Major challenges

Major Challenges

  • Legacy: isolation, low incomes (about 17-18% under $1/day), 40% of population lack 2 or more basic needs

  • Severe economic and social transformation in a short period of time –external migration, massive peri-urban growth

  • Little capacity to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate policy, weak governance and high corruption.

  • External interest: geopolitical issues, human trafficking, European accession, etc.

Establishing a Cross Cutting Strategy

  • Country’s needs much greater than available internal and external resources.

  • Extremely high civil service turnover, but public administration reform underway.

  • New initiatives in monitoring: 2001 Census and LSMS, and a plan for a permanent household survey.

  • GPRS backed by sectoral MTEF’s with some underlying health and education technical work
