Four Guiding Principles for Using Infrastructure to Reduce Poverty
Abstract:The first principle reflects the leading role of partner country governments in establishing solid frameworks for reliable aid flows. Partner governments should develop robust approaches for planning and managing pro‐poor growth and infrastructure development, expressed in coherent poverty reduction strategies and sector strategies formulated in consultation with stakeholders ‐ including donors and poor people. Donors can support this country‐led, outcome‐oriented approach by helping to build capacity and by co‐ordinating and harmonising their support in line with country priorities for reducing poverty.
