From the early development of the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), the Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR) has been keen to make sure the voice of the rural people, the primary beneficiaries of this and similar government initiatives, are clearly heard at the decision making levels of government. Now that the government has started implementing aspects of the PRSP, it is important that the CSPR closely follows all these interventions so it may, among other things, give feedback to the government on what is going on at the community level in terms of actual impacts of its poverty reduction strategy.

It is hoped that the Civil Society for Poverty Reduction (CSPR) network will conduct this national poverty reduction monitoring and evaluation survey on an annual basis. These surveys will help establish both the actual poverty situation on the ground as well as the perceived impacts of the PRSP from the local communities' perspectives. The information generated from these surveys will be used to inform wider civil society, Government and other stakeholders on the poverty situation in the country and help make recommendations for future PRSP and other poverty related implementation.

This paper is an analysis of the data and information that has been collected thus far (from baseline, 2002) by the CSPR in its poverty monitoring strategy.
