General information

The unit does not implement poverty programmes however its role and what it offers is confined to monitoring and evaluation and promotes learning and improvement by undertaking sustained and regular engagements with three key stakeholder groups: 1. The beneficiaries of the poverty-reduction programmes 2. The line departments and agencies implementing the programmes 3. Civil society organizations, academics and their institutions and other organized formations with an interest in the reduction of poverty. Based on these interactions and using knowledge gathered through reviews and analysis of quarterly performance reports provided by implementing Departments and Agencies, the PMU prepares and submits Policy Briefs to the Prime Minister which contain recommendations for his approval. These Briefs are the key mechanism available to the Unit for ensuring its suggestions for improvement are acted and the implementation of their recommendations is monitored by the Office and reported upon.
