The purpose of this paper, as mentioned above, is to provide a focused review of the
coverage of urban development issues in a sample of PRSPs to learn fro m the experiences with the aim of providing insight from these lessons to more effectively integrate urban priorities in poverty reduction strategies. The review draws on current and previous reviews of the PRS process in general, as well as a sample of nine country-specific Poverty Reduction Strategies, analyzing the PRS approach with an urban lens.
This review concentrates on PRSP experiences in nine countries that are at different stages of the PRS process. The countries that represent all regions include Albania, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Djibouti, Georgia, Honduras, Kenya, Pakistan, and Yemen.
