2nd PRSP Guidance Note
December 2003
1st UNDG Guidance Note to UNCTs on the PRSPs
November 2001
This Guidance Note describes how UN Country Teams can support national Poverty Reduction Strategies, including Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP) in those countries where governments have accepted to undertake PRSPs, and the relationship between CCA, UNDAF and PRSP. It has been prepared by UNDG because its members agree that the PRSP represents an important opportunity for the UN at country level to support the poverty reduction efforts of programme countries, and because Country Teams and governments have asked for clarification with regard to the different instruments.
