This training workshop and ad hoc expert group meeting was conducted under the auspices of the African Learning Group on Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (the PRSP-Learning Group or PRSP-LG). Established in 2001 by ECA at the urging of member States and the Bretton Woods institutions, the Learning Group (LG) served as a regional forum for peer learning and knowledge sharing on the design and implementation of Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers(PRSPs) which many African countries had to prepare as a requisite foe debt relief under the enhanced Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative (eHIPC). In 2006, the Cairo African Plenary on Poverty Reduction Strategies and the Millennium Development Goals expanded the remit of the LG to include learning and knowledge sharing on the MDGs. The LG now operates as the African Learning Group on Poverty Reduction Strategies and the Millennium Development Goals (PRS/MDGs-LG).
