Research reports and studies
Despite starting out with one of the lowest levels of human development in the world in the 1990s, Ethiopia is one of the few African countries on track to meet most of the Millennium Development Goals.
- Centering government policy on a single goal - poverty reduction - and taking a multidimensional approach can encourage ministries to work more comprehensively and consistently.
- Integrating social sectors into broader economic planning and high rates of pro-poor spending benefit the economy.
- Long-term planning and a clear division of responsibilities can build the foundation for broader transformation.
