Summary:

Progress toward growth objectives suffered from exogenous shocks. A substantial improvement was observed in certain social indicators, particularly in the health and education sectors. The Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) is reputed to be a framework for convergence of all interventions in Burkina Faso. The priority program should be extended to sectors that will have a clear impact on poverty. For successful implementation of the PRSP, it is important to emphasize the formulation of sectoral policies and to implement a national capacity-building plan.
