Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers in Latin America and the Caribbean
DFID, Multi country
|Although the Caribbean, Central and South America are relatively advanced regions, they still face persistent poverty. This was reduced in the 1990s, but achieving all the Millennium Development Goals will be a challenge, particularly those relating to the number of people living on less than $1 a day, maternal mortality in Latin America, and gender equality and HIV and AIDS in the Caribbean.
Mokoro Principal Consultant, Stephen Lister, was commissioned by DFID to prepare a paper on donor alignment in Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Heavily Indebted Poor Countries. Studies took place in Bolivia, Guyana, Honduras and Nicaragua.
